American Heritage Wildlife Foundation started its journey over 10 ago. The volunteers have dedicated well over 1,000 each year. The prompt reply to phone calls, the willingness to give up sleep to feed the orphaned babies, the sacrifices of personal time to attend public events and spread the word about this group that is working to preserve local wildlife and provide information to the community. Studies show the human population in Idaho will increase by half a million every 10 years! Where can the animals go to recover from injuries? Where can the public learn how to cohabitate with their native neighbors? I will continue to volunteer at AHWF because they are the only group with this mission and plan to build a (full service) Nature Center!
