Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, located on Florida's Sanibel Island, recently received $24,000 following an auction and book-signing party by Key West photographer Alan S. Maltz. The nonprofit veterinary hospital, known as CROW
, began operating in 1968 and cares for more than 4000 injured, sick and orphaned wildlife patients each year, such as this Swallow-tailed Kite.
The donation resulted from the auction of 10 limited-edition artist proofs on canvas of various sizes -- with 100 percent of the proceeds going to CROW -- as well as the sales of Maltz's new book, "Visions of Beauty - Fort Myers, Sanibel & Beyond."
