I first learned of Animalia at the Hoosier Outdoor Experience a few years ago at Ft. Benjamin Harrison where Joel talked to our group of Scouts. The boys loved it. My son loved it so much that I contacted Animalia to do a birthday party at my house for my son's 9th birthday. Both times, not only was the event informative, but it offered a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with animals that you might not otherwise be able to and to learn about these animals and nature in a very engaging way. Animal's mission is real because of the hard work and passion that the volunteers, Joel, and Ailigh put into the organization each and every day through these outreach events, wildlife rehabilitation, animal training, and behavior consultation. I am now honored to serve Animalia as a Board member and be part of this amazing organization that connects people to nature.

Joel's passion for animals come through in every single interaction. At both the Earth day festival and PBS kids in the park Animalia had audiences engaged. Children of all ages were captivated and educated. They all left with smiles on their faces and a passion for animals in their hearts.

Animalia Inc. is an amazing organization whose mission is essential to helping educate everyone about all animals. Joel has created programs to make learning about domestic, native and exotic animals. This education is vital to the success of our ecosystem and our planet. Everyone at Animalia is extremely passionate about animals, and want everyone they meet to share in that passion.

Animalia has faced many challenges this past year in changing facilities, yet has still grown its programs to reach more children and communities in its continued mission to connect people with nature. Its vision for the future to provide the community a dedicated nature center and wildlife rehabilitation services makes it an exciting time to be a part of such a great organization.

Animalia continues to make an impact in Indiana's communities. This year, they have expanded to several more counties, reaching an increasing number of school children. I am always amazed to see the diversity in their programs and their animals. Animalia continues forward with their mission, and is working towards a larger goal, their Global Center for Nature. Check out our website for more information!

Animalia is a wonderful non-profit organization that is a great alternative to TV, texting, and Facebook. Animalia works to reconnect people, especially children, with their environment and nature. Not only do they have a wide variety of animal information and programs, they have the animals themselves. Moving kids to get on their feet with a smile on their face takes dedication and passion. They have already reached thousands of people in such a short time - I can't wait to be part of what is next! http://www.animalia.us/

I recently joined Animalia Board, and have been very impressed with the passion, vision, and plain execution of the programs of this organization. Simply stated, Animalia is great at educating the public about the wonderful environment we live in, and the animals that live among us. The organization has great outreach programs, and continues to make a mark in the society.
