Carmel & James have and continue to not only take care of many exotic animals that were and are for the most part "rescued" they also educate the public on the nature of these animals, and why these wonderfull creatures belong in the wild. The Arkte Spirit Corp. is dedicated to all creatures that share the earth with us. James and Carmel are both caretakers and teachers on behalf of wildlife that is so many times is misunderstood by the general public. Their dedication helps to prevent our wild creatures from being abused , and also educates the general public of the many reasons why purchasing, or obtaining a wild creature is not only an unwise decision but a dangerous one. Kudos to you both!! The work that you do is just plain WONDERFUL! Thank you, on behalf of all the Wild Ones!

Carmel and James Severson at Arkte Spirit have rescued several animals from horrible conditions to give them the best life possible. They have made many sacrifices, always putting the animals first. They work very hard caring for every animal, not just basic needs but giving them the love and attention they need. They both work full time jobs also to be able to provide for these animals. Carmel works at a wildlife exhibit and cares for the animals there and is able to give educational presentations on the many levels of respecting wildlife and saving the Florida Panther. They are remarkable people that have devoted their lives to protecting animals. Any one who knows them has the utmost respect for them.

Carmel and James Severson have been putting animals first for as long I have known them. They live for the animals. Carmel gets up @ 5am to feed and clean the animals in her backyard. She spends time with each and every one to put them @ ease as well as let them know they are loved and safe. She finishes within 3 hours,gets ready and goes to her job taking care of animals for an exotic wildlife sanctuary in the Florida everglades. Teaching visitors what the animals are,how the live and what they eat. she finishes @ 5pm and goes home and along with James who just gets home take care of the animals again to give them their night feeding and secure them. Always spending time petting and talking to each and every one. Then goes in makes dinner and takes care of the domestic animals in their home. goes to bed @ 9pm and starts all over again the next morning. They have the spirit and love that makes them stand out in the community and the hearts of all that know them.
