Sequoia was brought to WildCare when she was a fledgling in 2005. She had been found on the ground in Larkspur unable to fly, with an injured left wing that resulted in the inability to fly silently -- a necessity for hunting prey. Because of this, Sequoia is not releasable. Her calm temperament and ease with living near humans makes her a truly wonderful Wildlife Ambassador, and through WildCare, Sequoia has been an integral part of educating countless adults and children about wildlife and the local ecosystem.
