BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — The Alabama Wildlife Center (AWC) at Oak Mountain has a new executive director.
Douglas Adair was recently named to the position.
The one of a kind facility cares for and rehabilitates injured and wild birds.
The AWC specializes in federally protected and migratory bird species.
They include native raptors, songbirds and water birds.
Adair says the center is the best kept secret in Alabama.
“We are Alabama’s oldest and largest wildlife rehabilitation facility,” Adair said. “Each year we receive almost 2,000 Alabama native, federally protected and migratory birds from over 100 different species.”
Adair says his goal is to make people in the state aware of the wildlife center.
They also offer classes for people who want to learn how to help protect Alabama’s wildlife.
