Two weeks ago, some members of the Oshawa Camera Club signed up for an outing to the Muskoka Wildlife centre in Severn Bridge just south of Gravenhurst. It turned out to be a very special day since I had never been “up close and personal” with creatures that are normally only found in the wild and almost impossible for me to photograph with the equipment that I have.
“Some of the resident animals are ex-pets or were abandoned, while others were injured in the wild and are now un-releasable.” Our group pre-booked 2 hour sessions behind the scenes and looked forward to some great photo opportunities as well as hearing about these birds and animals that are “hand raised and socialized” living out their lives in “spacious naturalized enclosures” provided by the Muskoka Wildlife Centre www.muskokawildlifecentre.com. I’d like to share some of the pictures that I took at this interesting “interactive learning park”. According to the brochure and on-line information, this centre works co-operatively with private individuals and government agencies in the creation of related projects”. An interesting place to visit and see animals in their enclosures or for an extra cost…up close!
