Arnold and Barfolomew – Turkey Vultures

Your generous donation to our Guardianship project helps provide food, housing, care and medical treatment for these amazing birds!

Both TUVUs came to us as former residents at UC Davis.  Both of them have injured wings that prevent them from being released. With these types of wing injuries, our vultures would be unable to scavenge for food in the wild. They are both very curious about new things, adore sunny walks on the glove to stretch out and warm up, and Arnold is our oldest Ambassador at 37 years old!


Arnold’s Ambassador Anniversary is August 1, 1982.

Barf’s Ambassador Anniversary is August 1, 1998.
