SANIBEL, Fla. — The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) AWC Visitor Education announced it would re-open to the public on Monday, June 15th.
“We’re ready to re-open our doors for visitors, but want to keep everyone healthy in the process.” We’ve added signage to help with social distancing and taken steps to reduce the chance for the virus to spread.” says Alison Charney Hussey, executive director for CROW.
CROW is taking new safety measures to protect visitors, staff, and Animal Ambassadors.
The Visitor Center will include scheduled cleaning and sanitizing of commonly used areas and surfaces. A plexiglass safety barrier has been installed at the check-in desk between staff and visitors, and CROW will only be accepting payment by credit/debit card.
Hand sanitizer stations have been placed throughout the Center with signs reminding visitors to sanitize their hands often. Additionally, all staff and visitors will be required to wear face masks.
CROW asks that you wear masks due to the possibility of human to animal spread, they want to keep you and their animal ambassadors safe while you visit.
Children’s exhibits have been modified to allow for social distancing and for surfaces to be easily cleaned and sanitized. For the time being, live presentations and Wildlife Walk guided hospital tours will not be offered. Visitors will still be able to view live feed cameras.
The AWC Visitor Education Center will be open to the public Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more details regarding CROW’s re-opening plan, please visit www.CROWClinic.org or call (239) 472-3644.
