  • Raptor rehabilitation in Maryland isn't just about the birds but of the amazing women who get them back to health. Evelyn Lewis, a perennial volunteer at the Owl Moon Raptor Rehab Center, flies Michael, a red-shouldered hawk recovering from rodenticide poisoning. Michael's poisoning left her on the cusp of death, with the help of dedicated volunteers like Evelyn, not only has Michael recovered from her poisoning, but she is beginning the process of flight training for her upcoming release., Owl Moon Raptor Center (Category: Conservation)

Sadly, sometimes their toys are pieces of garbage that are entering the ocean and arriving at their remote, uninhabited homes on ocean currents. On this day, in the span of two dives, I was able to collect six pieces of garbage they were playing with including the one pictured., Coronado Islands, Baja California, Mexico (Category: Conservation)
