This unlucky Night Heron found himself literally tied by fishing line between an overhanging branch and debris in a tidal creek. We responded to this situation without being sure he was even still alive. Ankle deep in slippery muck and sharp oyster shells, Val launched a paddleboard to navigate down to where she could cut the poor guy down ... and he was alive! He had soft tissue damage after hanging for so long from his wing, but he was going to survive. It's rescues like these that we need public support for ... this rescue involved 100 miles of driving and three hours of time which then just begins the actual rehab effort. Donations from the public and our business community help us be able to afford to continue these efforts.
