LWR is a state and federally permitted organization that recovers injured and orphaned wildlife for rehabilitation and return to the wild. THis organization's work covers a large part of Georgia including many metro areas like Macon. Their work hours are 24/7-365.
As urbanization pushes into more wildlife habitat the encounters between people and wildlife increase. The wildlife usually gets the short end of the encounter.
Their work requires continual growth of skills and techniques for the variety of wildlife they encounter. There are no schools or quick fixes to obtain this information. It comes from studying hard and pulling together good resources.
LWR is one of the best.
Since its inception, I've written several newspaper articles about Laurens Wildlife Rescue, Inc. The response from the public is obvious in the calls we take at the newspaper after the articles are published. LWR not only aids the wildlife in our region, but educates the public about encountering injured wildlife, what to do if the public finds wildlife babies, what protocol should be taken for rabid animals and more. From an educational aspect, LWR is providing a critical service to the community - and from a hands on rescue aspect, LWR is answering a need that no one else regionally can provide.
