Meet Ebenezer Scrooge
Through their food caching, the American Red Squirrels often help the environment through the distribution of spruce seeds and other trees.
Ebenezer Scrooge is a little guy with a big personality, Ebenezer, better known as Ebby, was rescued in 2020 when he became too habituated to humans to remain in the wild. Red squirrels are territorial which makes them pretty feisty naturally, and Ebby was no exception when he came to the sanctuary. His primary trainer has been able to direct that energy into learning things like how to target, station, and kennel. All of this training really helps stimulate his mind! Visit Ebenezer in his new outdoor enclosure behind the Be Wild Gift Shop.
