New partnership means expansion of Wildlife Images

Grants Pass, Ore. -- A unique partnership for Wildlife Images will help the rehabilitation and education center in Grants Pass expand.

The center is partnering with the National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory in Ashland.

Wildlife Images Executive Director, Dave Siddon Jr., said the partnership will establish a bridge between the wildlife that are rehabilitated at the facility and wildlife who are victims of crimes and end up in the lab.

Wildlife Images plans on building a new research and education facility with an interactive laboratory where students can learn about animal science and forensics.
