Ohio Wildlife Center was kind enough to give me permission to video at their Education Center and these 3D videos were captured there. OWC’s works to foster awareness and appreciation of Ohio’s native wildlife. I have been acquainted with them for many years and am happy there is such a dedicated group of people doing so much good for our local wildlife. Find out more at: www.ohiowildlifecenter.org.
