I've been volunteering at the Alabama Wildlife Center for about two months now. The staff and volunteers are wonderful, generous, dedicated people who care deeply about the work they do. Rescuing, rehabilitating, and releasing 1,600 injured and orphaned wild birds per year is endless--and considering the clientele, thankless--work, but the results are extraordinary. This is a small nonprofit making a huge difference in the lives of wild birds and, by direct extension, in human lives as well. I'm proud to volunteer with this extraordinarily humane, beneficial, and selfless organization.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

releasing rescued and rehabilitated raptors and song birds back into the wild.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

It confirmed my recently newfound goal of working full time with an environmental nonprofit.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Appreciated, effective, competent, meaningful.
