The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife in Sanibel says it needs the public’s help in acquiring more aquariums to contain its many new arrivals.

With “baby season” upon us, the clinic says it is admitting hundreds of patients weekly, and these high intake periods deplete the supply it needs the most to deal with the high patient load: aquariums of all sizes.

These aquariums serve as temporary holdings during intake examinations, weigh-ins, transport, and other procedures. CROW has added extra small, small, medium, large and extra-large aquariums to its hospital supplies Amazon wishlist.

The clinic added in its Facebook post: “Thank you for your support in helping us save Southwest Florida’s wildlife!”
