New Friends In Animal Work

Cincinnati Exotics is proud to have new members to our team.  

The Bob and Norma Cogar Memorial Animal Shelter will handle all of our domestic animal care needs.  These highly trained, caring professionals will help make sure that any animal that comes into our care is given the best care until they find a new home.

The Wayne and Joyce Beckham Memorial World Wildlife Education Center will continue to educate visitors about all wildlife around the world.  This group will continue our work with all wildlife outside of our wild bird conservation work. 
This group will also work under guidelines set by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), US Department of Fish and Wildlife, International Union for Conserving Nature (IUCN), and will also use tree identification guidelines from the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA.  A tree care organization championing the correct care of trees worldwide, of which our founder is studying to become an ISA Certified Arborist). 

New Beginnings

It has been some time since I have gotten on the blog to write.  So much has happened but now that things are falling into place, I am ready to return to this platform.

There comes a time when any business or private individual needs to look at the direction of that entity is heading.  Cincinnati Exotics recently did just that, and while changes were needed, it was because we have finally found the help needed with our local wildlife to be able to move forward with our initial goal.

I am proud of the work done by Cincinnati Exotics staff and volunteers in spreading the word about wildlife conservation.  Our position in this field can now change some, as we have found an amazing bunch of ladies that will be happy to take care of local wildlife while we focus on birds and domestic animal needs.  Nature's Nurses, based in Mason, Ohio, is a wonderful group with the enthusiasm and dedication that I have hoped to find in this field from others.

It is with great pride that I announce that now that Nature's Nurses has gotten set up and is continuing the work that each of these wonderful people did on their own, Cincinnati Exotics will no longer offer wildlife services, except for when Nature's Nurses needs our support or a bird is involved.

Our work will consist of wild bird conservation, education, habitat restoration, and rescue.  We will also maintain focus on all domestic animals, including birds.

Thank you to everyone who has been a part of our growth and transformation.  I look forward to continuing our mission to save animals from extinction, and to help save people from losing what many of us value so much: our Earth.
