Since 1988, a small Wildlife Rehabilitation Center for the Ecological Reproduction Rehabilitation Complex “Romashka” has been operating in the Tver Province, not far from the great Russian river Volga.
Over the years, its guests, temporary and permanent, were wolves and owls, lynxes and falcons, badgers and hawks, raccoon dogs and buzzards, foxes and eagles, hedgehogs and many, many other birds and animals.
Work in the Center, people of the most different trades and education put the forces and means.
If you are not indifferent to the fate of wild animals, the ecology and the future of our planet, JOIN! Our business is open to all!
The work on the rehabilitation of wild birds was begun in 1978 at the Moscow Zoo on the basis of the ornithology section and continues to the present. For over 35 years, we have been developing rehabilitation projects, not only for birds that fell into the hands of humans, but also for many other animals. The last project, which was started in 1988 on the basis of Zubtsovskiy LEU IEMEZH, Academy of Sciences of the USSR, was renewed again in 2003 and is called “European Lynx”. These projects - for the rehabilitation of wild birds and the rehabilitation of the European lynx - are the main ones at present.
This project appeared about 30 years ago, when Alexei Murashov met with the work of the Moscow and Leningrad zoos. It turned out that a large number of injured animals affected by human activity come to the veterinary center from visitors. Most of them were put to sleep.
It was then that Alexey Murashov came up with the idea of developing a set of measures to rescue representatives of wild animals.
For several years, not only birds, but also all kinds of animals — foxes, raccoon dogs, badgers, roes, ferrets, rabbits, etc. — turned out to be objects of return to nature.
At this time, the nursery staff conducted work on scientific programs for the rehabilitation of certain species of animals (peregrine falcon, owl, lynx, Asian cheetah, etc.)
Over 30 years of operation of the nursery, known abroad as a rehabilitation center for birds and other wild animals, more than 3,000 wild animals have received help here, of which 80% are birds of 113 species, 16 species of animals, 7 species of amphibians and 6 species of reptiles.
More than 2500 birds were released into nature.
We work in the Center for our own money and for the money of private sponsors. These funds are barely enough to feed and renew an aviary for animals, the number of which does not decrease every year. For this reason, we cannot endlessly take more and more new animals for permanent residence in the Center. Every year, 10 to 80 animals are treated and trained at the Center.
We do not sell or buy animals.
We deal only with domestic species of animals, which after treatment and preparation can return to the wild.
And if someone has a desire to help wild animals, we will be grateful.
