I have volunteered in many areas at the SNC and have enjoyed all so much. They do such great work saving so many hurt and abandon wild animals every year. It's amazing how they do this all on private donations and volunteers. Our city is very lucky to have them as we are located very close to the Everglades and so have many wild birds and animals living among us. I very much advise anyone in our area to please volunteer or donate funds and supplies much needed.

I was a volunteer at the center, in the animal hospital. I cleaned cages. I saw nothing wasted and lots of hard work. I do not know how the rest of donations are spent, but in the hospital it was well used. They run sales and educational events.

This facility is a much needed resource in our community. It provides not only a place to bring injured wildlife for rehabiliation but also educates the commmunity, both children and adults, about our environment and the animals that share our neighborhood. My children grew up attending many educational programs and when they were old enough, they volunteered. The nature center has been a wonderful place for our family and neighbors to work together, helping the animals that can not help themselves, and educating the next generation of children.

It has been a very heart-warming experience over the years to assist the staff and other volunteers at the nature center and wildlife hospital in helping injured native wildlife and baby wildlife. It is the greatest feeling of compassion when we release the 'recovered' animals back into the wild. I congratulate all of the other volunteers and staff who help the animals who can't help themselves.
