The 2015 Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network Benefit for Wildlife Luncheon Set for April 12

On Sunday, April 12, 2015 Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network (SBWCN) will host the 2015 Benefit for Wildlife luncheon at the Montecito Country Club in Santa Barbara. Geoff Green, CEO of the Santa Barbara City College Foundation, will serve as master of ceremonies. The event will feature speaker Timothy Coonan, wildlife biologist and leading expert on the Channel Island Fox. Tim will speak about his experiences leading the successful Island Fox recovery program since 1992.

This year’s silent auction includes a week in a private villa on the secluded tropical island of Bequia, St. Vincent & the Grenandines; a six-night excursion to the private South African reserve, Zulua Nyala Game Lodge & Safari; a week in Alaska’s Cook Inlet; a quaint retreat in the Swiss Alps; and more.

Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network has proudly served Santa Barbara County for 27 years. Funds raised on April 12 will support SBWCN’s mission to rescue, rehabilitate and return to the wild sick, injured, orphaned, or oil-impaired wild birds and small mammals native to Santa Barbara County and to educate the public about living in harmony with wildlife. Each year, volunteers rescue, rehabilitate and release thousands of injured and orphaned birds, mammals and reptiles in the county.
