SWCC’S 25TH ANNIVERSARY:

Reflections on our first 25 years

W

hen I first purchased land in the Rio Verde Foothills 25 years ago, I envisioned a wildlife rehab facility with a state-of-the-art veterinary clinic and a distinctive wildlife educational center. The first year was a tough one; I lived in a 24-foot travel trailer with only a generator to rely on for power for lights, charging my cell phone, and pumping water. A land line phone was unavailable and cell service was very sketchy. In order to make or receive a call, I had to climb onto a rock—the only spot on the property with adequate reception. It was a cold rainy November when I started, and a hot summer followed. Just as the buildings were being framed in, we were threatened with the Rio Fire. The fire started as a dry lightning strike at 122nd Street and Dynamite, with high winds pushing it to the south and east—straight at SWCC. I started calling volunteers to come help prepare for evacuation just in case it looked like it would reach us. We began by crating animals within their enclosures and turning on the overhead misters to keep them cool. Once they were all crated, we started loading them into trucks, trailers, cars, and vans for evacuation. Dr. Irv Ingram was kind enough to let us move the animals into his All Creatures veterinary hospital until the fire was contained. We were very fortunate; the fire just missed SWCC. We had been able to get all the animals evacuated with the exception of two herds of javelina. In order to give them the best chance for surviving the fire, we dumped lots of

Linda and Hatch

food in the pens, turned on all the sprinklers, and opened the gates. After the fire was contained, we were allowed to return. As we were unloading animals, one of the volunteers went to check on the javelina we had left behind. When she returned, she had a troubled look on her face. She said, “We have a problem.” “What?” I asked. We had twice as many as javelina as we started with. It seems all the javelina from the surrounding area had ended up taking refuge at SWCC. The overhead sprinklers had created pools of cool water to in which to wallow. We had left behind plenty of food. It looked like a javelina resort, filled to capacity with lots of very contented javelina!

In that same year, SWCC became involved with the Mexican Gray Wolf Recovery Program. Cila was our first Mexican gray wolf; she came to us from the Navajo Nation Zoo. From this point forward, our participation in the recovery program grew until SWCC became one of the largest holding facilities for Mexican gray wolves in the U.S. Joys. Sorrows. Challenges. Successes. Each day brought something new and more of the same: a new animal to save; an unusual or unexpected development; providing care for those that had already found their way here. We look at each case individually, as each animal is different. However, each is important and they all need our help.

Then in 2014 we started receiving complaints from a new neighbor about the wolves howling. In 2015, SWCC and myself were hit with a lawsuit from that neighbor because of the wolves howling and dust from our driveway. This took a lot of resources away from our mission, both financially and in the form of stress.  After nearly 3 years of legal battles, the plaintiff dropped the lawsuit.  We are eternally grateful to attorneys Sam Coppersmith, Andy Gordon, and Michael Clyde for their help defending SWCC and me. SWCC was created as a result

of my dream that there would be a place where animals could receive help instead of lying alone and helpless, waiting for death to release them from pain and suffering. This dream has come true because of our dedicated volunteers, tireless staff, and generous donors. Together, we have made my dream a reality. The future lies before us, along with new challenges. We want to make SWCC an institution that will be here for generations to come. We want to create a wildlife education center where biology and veterinary interns can learn via hands-on experiences with wildlife. We want to

increase our public wildlife educational programs, so the public can learn to respect instead of fear our wildlife, understand each species’ importance to the overall health of the environment, and protect those that need protection, for the benefit of all—including us. I thank all SWCC donors, volunteers, and staff for being there for the animals and invite you all to continue the journey with us to see SWCC into the future.

Linda Searles

Letter from the Chairman of the Board On behalf of the board of directors, I want to thank you for your support of Southwest Wildlife. Whether you just joined our family or have been with us for many years, your giving ensures that injured, orphaned, or displaced wildlife has a safe place to heal, grow up, or live permanently. Without you and the many volunteers who make Southwest what it is today, we would not be able to make Southwest what it needs to be tomorrow. As we enter our 25th year, our mission of saving our wildlife one life at a time is becoming even more critical as human/wildlife interactions become more commonplace. With your continuing support, Southwest Wildlife will always be here for our wildlife. Michael Sapp Chairman of the Board, Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center

Rocket: Welcome to a New Sanctuary Bobcat

S

WCC had good luck with bobcat babies in 2018. Six adult females came in along with their kittens, making life easier for our staff since the mother cats would take care of raising their own youngsters. But on a late July day in Tucson, a tiny bobcat kitten was found and soon made his way to SWCC. Only about a week old, with eyes and ears still closed and barely responsive, he required 24-hour care to nurse him back to life.

Rocket often wears a toothy grin while he plays

Rocket's favorite perch

Unfortunately, being a late baby and by himself, there were no other bobcat kittens to raise with him. At 8 weeks of age, we tried introducing him to one of the mother bobcats and her kittens, but he was too frightened of the other bobcats. For three weeks the SWCC team tried many different methods of integrating this young kitten to others in our rehabilitation area to prepare him for release, to no avail. He simply wanted human contact. Although a failure by release standards, SWCC was prepared to give this little kitten what he wanted the most. Now named Rocket, he gained the confidence needed to live with our other non-releasable bobcats on the tour route. He enjoys educating our visitors by entertaining them with his antics, his bobcat agility, and his story.

Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center (SWCC) Misson “SAVING OUR WILDLIFE, ONE LIFE AT A TIME.”

T

o help meet the challenges of our mission, SWCC has identified four core components that complement and are inter-dependent upon each other:

Rehabilitation:

We heal the injured, raise orphans, and return wildlife to freedom.

Education:

We provide wildlife information to the general public to prevent human-wildlife conflicts and encourage their understanding of wildlife and their importance in the environment while inspiring and providing opportunities for the next generation of wildlife professionals.

Medicine:

We develop programs and perform humane, non-invasive research to provide humane solutions to wildlife conflicts and other wildlife issues and concerns through science

Sanctuary:

We provide a home for life to non-releasable wildlife.

T

he core components of SWCC’s mission provide a win-win situation for wildlife and their longterm survival: A wild animal receives the opportunity for rehabilitation and release or sanctuary, which in turn provides both the general public and future wildlife professionals the opportunity to learn vital information necessary to improve the future of wildlife and our environment.

Rehabilitation

Since opening, SWCC has treated thousands of injured, orphaned, and displaced wild animals in its onsite hospital and released the majority of them back into the wild. Wildlife rehab makes a life-or- death difference to each animal we treat, but it does not solve the underlying problem: why and how that animal came into our hospital in the first place. It almost always comes down to human-wildlife conflict.

6

Sanctuary

Some animals, even after rehabilitation, cannot be released back into wild. They may have disabilities that make it impossible for them to survive in the wild, or they may have imprinted on or habituated to humans. Those animals that cannot be released find a permanent home in SWCC’s sanctuary, accredited by the American Sanctuary Association. To maintain this accreditation, we may not breed, buy, sell, or trade animals and we may not use animals for commercial purposes.

Education

While you can learn a lot from books, the internet, and television, there is no substitute for looking into the eyes of a wild animal, which creates a one-on-one connection that is like no other and one you are unlikely to ever forget. Our educational programs build intellectual and emotional connections that motivate our guests to coexist with wildlife and to understand the importance of wildlife and wild places. Knowledgeable educators guide intimate tours through the sanctuary, interpreting the animals’ stories on their behalf. Our tours and special events are extremely popular with members of the community, out-of-town visitors, schools and scout groups.

Conservation Medicine

Conservation medicine is an umbrella field that brings together practitioners, teachers, researchers, and students from various fields within the health and natural sciences. As conservation medicine progresses, new tools are developed to improve rehabilitation by learning more about which veterinary and reintroduction techniques work best, as well as obtaining species habitat and survival data. Wildlife helped at SWCC provide opportunities for learning about wildlife health through collection of lab and reproductive samples, data about diseases and vaccines, and providing hands-on clinic and field experience for current and future wildlife professionals.

...For Every Animal

outhwest Wildlife Conservation Center specializes in rescuing and rehabilitating species that other facilities don’t have the means to care for. While many other rehabilitation facilities in the state admit all animals, certain species are immediately sent to SWCC. Our large, state-of-theart wildlife hospital and expert staff are the major reasons why animals are transferred to us. SWCC is known for its success rate in raising, treating, and healing difficult and fractious species such as coyotes, bobcats, jave-

8

lina, raccoons and skunks. Our staff is skilled at raising babies of these species, and our hospital is equipped with a dedicated neonatal room just for that purpose. SWCC also takes in adults of these species that are ill or injured, often hit by a car. While many are in critical condition on arrival, our staff and volunteer veterinarians give them the chance to survive with medications and surgery if needed, while providing the humane use of euthanasia for those whose injuries are too severe. The number of animals admitted to SWCC increased in 2018, perhaps as a result of the

effect of habitat loss in our area. Of the 270 animals rescued by Southwest Wildlife in 2018, 80% of the surviving animals have or will be released and given a second chance at a wild life. Those who survive but no longer have the ability to live in the wild are given a home in our accredited sanctuary for life. Some of these sanctuary residents become foster parents for orphaned youngsters thereby helping future generations of wildlife be successfully released back to the wild. SWCC provides sanctuary for over 250 animals in addition to the 270 rescued during 2018.

onations and grants remained our most important source of income in 2018. Nearly three quarters of our total revenue came from charitable gifts. Without the dedicated support of our many friends, our work simply would not be possible. 2018 also saw great progress in diversifying our sources of income. Proceeds from tours we provide visitors jumped 63%, driven by

10

the best marketing team ever—our guests! Your visits, the friends you encourage to visit, and your high ranking of the experience (#1 on Trip Advisor for outdoor things to do in Scottsdale) increased our ticket sales by $75,000 and expanded the impact of our education messages. Increased buzz about SWCC also helped to drive more people to our special events, which showed more than 30% income growth. An increase in guests had an even

greater impact as it generated a significant increase in our gift shop revenue. With donations continuing to be strong, we were able to add much-needed updates to the veterinary clinic and enhance several of the animal enclosures while still providing the best care possible to all the animals we help. Donations also fund valuable education programs, especially our school tour programs, that provide awareness around wildlife.

How expenses were allocated in 2018: Animal Heath – 28% (vet care, medicines, clinic costs, etc.) Animal Care – 44% (food, cleanup, heating/cooling, etc.) Facility Maintenance – 16% (animal pens, barn, etc.) Education – 12% (education activities, fundraising, etc.)

TOGETHER WE MADE A DIFFERENCE IN 2018

...In Education for All Ages

2

018 was a successful year for educational programs. Our public tour visitation grew by 42% and many of our special events and holiday programs filled to capacity! We love to hear locals regularly tell us they are visiting for the 3rd, 4th, or 5th time introducing a new group of out-of-town guests each visit to the best place to see native Arizona wildlife. We love to hear the coos of adoration from our guests when Leo, the jaguar-leopard hybrid, crosses his paws as he relaxes in the grass in front of guests. But we especially love to hear, “This was the best school trip ever!” And that’s what we began to hear in the fall of 2018. Prior to last year, our school tours were almost identical to public tours but with simplified language and a faster pace. But

quality environmental education programs call for an intentional approach that builds environmental knowledge, develops skills in nature awareness, and fosters attitude that inspires action to make the world a better place. If we wanted to make a difference for the youngest visitors, we needed to up our game. Over the summer and fall of 2018 we developed and piloted three school tour curricula that did just that.

Our new field trip programs are now an engaging adventure that include fun activities and build enduring connections. Students learn about the vital importance of native mammals to southwest ecosystems. They learn basic facts about each species as well as each individual animal’s story of how they came to live at SWCC. We teach that wild animals are not pets and how to safely coexist with the wildlife around us.

These inquiry-based, STEM programs use age-appropriate activities, vocabulary, and themes that scaffold knowledge. With each tour, the students get a take-away to remember their journey with us. Kindergarten through 4th grade tours focus on wildlife habitats and the difference between pets and wildlife. Middle schoolers look deeply at food webs through predator/ prey relationships and the carrying capacity of ecosystems. High school students learn about habitat fragmentation and discuss wildlife conservation solutions including the role of sanctuaries such as SWCC. Response is overwhelmingly positive from all the stakeholders—SWCC staff and docent volunteers, teachers and from the students themselves. As we continue to share the story of Southwest Wildlife, guests of all ages contribute to our success. The Education Department measures achievement by an answer to this vital question, “Did you fall in love with Southwest today?” Judging by the response from our youngest (and brightest guests) the answer is yes!

We wanted to limit the stress on the animals, so we were going to learn how to make medical procedures calm and comfortable for them. We started working with the bears and mountain lions.  As we were deciding which animals to work with I thought, how can you train a mountain lion to sit?  Lynn first taught us her techniques for training. We had to start by building trust with the animals. Our goal was to create a positive, fun, and stimulating environment for the animals, Giselle was always curious so they would be motivated to train. I first started working with receive a hand injection to sedate Giselle, a 16 year old mountain her since she was due for a roulion, because she was friendly tine medical exam.  When the day and comfortable around people.

through the fence. As the injection process started, Giselle remained calm. Everything went smoothly and Giselle was sedated and ready to go into the clinic for her exam. Unfortunately during Giselle’s exam, the medical staff noticed a large lump in her stomach. They did some X-rays and determined she had a large mass on her spleen. They decided to see if the mass could be removed. But they discovered her heart also had a mass and was not functioning correctly. Giselle was good at hiding her daily discomfort. We had no idea she was having major health problems. After a few days in the clinic, Giselle’s health declined, and she was not able to return to her enclosure. The medical staff had to make the hard decision to let her go.  The gut-wrenching news that she was gone hit me hard. I could not believe I would never again get to see her happily run to me for a training session or hear her affectionate purr. I was heartbroken, as was all of the SWCC staff. Giselle was truly loved by everyone. I am still saddened by her loss, but I am comforted that she was not darted and stressed going into the clinic. The trusting relationship I built with Giselle will be my goal as I train with the other mountain lions. Giselle will always have a special place in my heart and I can only hope I enriched her life as much as she enriched mine.

WILD FAMILY DONOR SPOTLIGHT

Katie Keller

Katie Keller–Wild Family member, donor, volunteer and intern

W

hen you become part of Southwest Wildlife’s Wild Family by signing up to make monthly donations, you are providing gifts that can be used by animals in urgent need. Our Wild Family is a special part of Southwest Wildlife because your gifts are consistent and reliable and—just like family—the animals can always count on you to be there when they need you most. Three years ago, Katie found out about SWCC through, believe it or not, social media. Being that she is a huge advocate of wildlife and environmental conservation, she became intrigued—her passions very much aligned with the organization’s mission and she was excited. Katie reached out to SWCC and began to volunteer. In 2017, she joined Wild Family and donated a portion of each paycheck to the organization. That same year, she was also required to participate in an internship that aligned with her college degree, a Bachelor of Science in Sustainability with a track in ecosystem sustainability and a minor in non-profits. SWCC was a perfect fit. Throughout her three-month summer internship, Katie built incredible bonds not only with the animals she was taking care of each day but with the SWCC team. Her time at Southwest Wildlife provided validation that her passion for helping wild animals was real. When asked what animal is her favorite, Katie certainly has a hard time narrowing it down. If pressed, she would have to say, “Lucky the Javelina, the bears… oh and the wolves.” While Katie contributes both time and money to the organization, she is most excited about the Facebook fundraiser she held for her birthday in 2018 to benefit SWCC and she is proud to say that she doubled her target for funds raised, all while increasing awareness amongst family and friends. Katie is just one of our many Wild Family members and SWCC donors. On behalf of each wild aniAs an animal care intern, Katie helped with mal, we say thank you for your support. several new arrivals
