Animalia has continued to grow and exceed expectations over the past few years. Not only have we expanded the number of people we have educated, we have also grown internally to meet goals and push ourselves towards greater things.
Animalia is a one-of-a kind addition to Indiana. Addressing our children's Nature Deficiency Disorder is vital in this virtual age.

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.

I am so proud and feel very privileged to know Joel and be on the board for Animalia. The genuine passion they have for what they are doing is unmatched. This organization works so hard and does so much for educating the community, taking care of animals, and just being a great example and leader.

I first learned of Animalia at the Hoosier Outdoor Experience. Oh my, I was blown away at how Joel connected with people at this event. Everyone seemed so engaged as he brought out various animals, talked about them, and let the kids touch them. Animalia's mission is to connect people with nature. How can we expect people to care enough about animals and nature to protect them if they know very little about them? I know not everyone loves animals the way I do, but I hope we can all agree we are part of a common ecosystem that we all benefit from when we take care of it. Animalia brings this thought together in a fun, informative, and interactive way. What an important message for our kids in today's world!

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.

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.
