Great Britons in Crete: Margaret Clurow

"Call Margaret, She'll Help You Rescue Wildlife in Distress" 
Location:  Sissi, Lassithi, Crete

 

 

Capodimonte Lookalike Buzzard Rehabilitated by Margaret Clurow, Crete, Greece

 

Left: Rehabilitated Buzzard, which Margaret nicknamed the "Capodimonte Buzzard".


No one knows what it means to rehabilitate injured birds and rescue wildlife such as hedgehogs in Crete better than British ex-patriate and resident, Margaret Clurow. The plight of any protected animal species is close to Margaret's heart.

This interest goes as far back as to her childhood when at the age of 4 her parents gave her a pet rabbit to take care of. Dogs and cats were to follow over the years and right through married life, once prompting her husband to ask if he or the animals got fed first!
