This little cormorant was found on the beach in Ponte Vedra. He is thin and suffering from an eye injury. His rescue is the perfect example of wildlife rescue team work. He was spotted on the beach Thursday evening by Jeff who was riding his bike along the shoreline. Jeff reached out to The Ark and we asked one of our wonderful Ponte Vedra Beach volunteers, Frank, to go out to the beach to capture and contain the bird. Frank then met a voluntee...r from Atlantic Beach who brought the bird to @Pets R Family Veterinary Hospital on CR 210 the next morning. Dr. Deckard donates her expertise to our local wildlife and she treated the cormorant's eye injury and contacted Valerie to pick up and transfer to the Anastasia Island bird property for continued care and rehab.
Great work everyone! Lucky little cormorant indeed.
