Environmental Studies Center Needs Produce for Animals

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Alabama -

The Environmental Studies Center is asking the public to donate fruits and vegetables to feed their animals. The center takes in injured wild animals and currently has many of them on display for students. This time of year, the animals eat more than they do in the winter. Biologist Susan Clement says a major grocery store chain used to donate their leftover fruits and vegetables, but has since stopped doing that. The fresh produce is expensive, and donations are appreciated!

Clement says the animals get excited when she brings in a plate of salad, apples, corn, sweet potatoes, lettuce, and carrots. The deer at the center even eat apples out of your hand! She is asking the public to please donate any unwanted produce. "You have extras in your garden, whether it's zucchini, tomatoes, whatever you happen to have. If you can't eat it. And you can't think of a place to take it. Think of us."  The center says the animals also like cheerios.

If you would like a complete list of items that the center needs, visit the Environmental Studies Center Facebook page.
