There is a very special place here in Southern Maine, the Center for Wildlife. With a humble existence, they take in and treat hundreds of animals that literally have no where else to go, as no other rehabilitation facility exists for our special wildlife. And somehow, as our local human population has expanded, so has the Center's work. There is a small committed team who run this place, but they also rely greatly on rotating volunteers. As the Internship Director and adjunct faculty for a local university, I have sent many students to the Center to complete their internship, and every one of them has had an extraordinary experience. Not only does the Center help imperiled wildlife, they serve the educational community, and the public at large. They teach interns and volunteers who then become wildlife stewards and educators themselves. Further, the Center for Wildlife reaches into the community to teach. Many times they have come to my environmental studies classrooms as guest speakers, and have provided thoughtful, and thought provoking lessons on co-existing with wildlife. I have come to rely on the Center for Wildlife, they are a unique place for the rehabilitation of diverse animals from owls and hawks to snakes and turtles, and a center for the education of our academic and at-large community.

My class enjoyed several educational programs led by the Center for Wildlife this past year. The programs were enriching for both staff and students alike with a variety of activities including discussion and hands on analysis by students. We look forward to working with the Center for years to come.

As a progressive educator, it can be difficult to find like minded and like practiced teachers out there. In their educational programs, The Center for Wildlife does not try to tell students what to think nor give them answers. Instead, they provide real, hands-on experiences for students with the animals that allows the students to think and construct their own understanding. With the bat program, for example, this knowledge can also be followed by action on the teacher and students part. It is exciting to know that the Center for Wildlife is doing such an educational service for the community.
