Wildlife Ambassador Portraits by Mary D'Agostino

 

Photographer Mary D'Agostino created the Wildlife Ambassador Photo Project as a way to highlight the beauty of the nonreleaseable wild animals that live full time at WildCare: our Wildlife Ambassadors. She also wanted to put a spotlight on the reasons these animals would not be able to survive in the wild, reinforcing the lessons our Ambassadors teach visitors to WildCare every day.

WildCare and Mary D'Agostino are offering archival-quality, hand-signed, artist prints of five incredible photos in a variety of sizes, framed or unframed. All proceeds from the sale of these exquisite art pieces will go directly to WildCare!

These striking and unique images make the perfect gift! Order by December 13, 2019 to ensure fulfillment before the holidays. Scroll down for price list.

Unframed prints will be shipped anywhere in the United States, but unfortunately framed prints can not be shipped (due to the glass used in framing). Framed prints MUST be picked up at WildCare in San Rafael.   

 
Sequoia the Northern Spotted Owl. Photo by Mary D'Agostino

Sequoia fell from her nest as a young bird. She is able to fly somewhat, but in the fall she damaged the part of her wing that allows her to fly silently.

As a Northern Spotted Owl, Sequoia's natural habitat is in old-growth redwood forest, where silent wings are necessary to catch prey. Sequoia was found and brought to WildCare. She lives full-time with us as a Wildlife Ambassador.

Marla was found with an injured front foot, and the people who found her kept her as a pet for over 30 years! Marla was lucky that her rescuers kept their commitment to her, but too many people get turtles as pets without appreciating how long these animals live.

At WildCare, Marla teaches people about the commitment required to keep a reptile pet healthy and happy throughout her lifespan, and she helps us teach visitors to let wild animals stay wild, and not take wildlife as pets!

Grace came to WildCare after being found on the ground with an injured wing. She may have been hit by a car, which is a common reason for Red-tails to need care at WildCare.

Grace offers an up-close look at one of our area's most beautiful, and most commonly-seen raptors, inspiring a sense of awe and a desire to protect in visitors of all ages.

Pele came to WildCare as a patient in the Wildlife Hospital. His wing injury rendered him nonreleaseable, so he lives full time in our courtyard as an educational animal.

Peregrine Falcons were once incredibly endangered, due to DDT and habitat loss. These incredible birds, the world's fastest animal, have made a stunning comeback. Pele helps us teach about the dangers of DDT and other pesticides to our environment.

 Kele, the American Kestrel, was likely kidnapped from his nest as a chick to be a pet. Although habituated to humans, he either escaped, or was released.

Kele helps us teach that wild animals do not make good pets, and all wild animals should be able to stay free, and able to live the wild life they deserve.
