Young eagle being released back to the wild.

Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care releases hundreds of healthy animals back to the wild every year.

Our goal with every injured and orphaned animal we receive is to release them back to the wild, as healthy animals able to fend for themselves. Share in some of these beautiful moments, below.
