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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen the injured birds. The rehab plans for the birds were followed perfectly resulting in many successful releases.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to make much more funding available to them.

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the response of the community in how to handle injured or diseased wildlife.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Not only a caring and compassion response, but every encounter with Laurens Wildlife Rescue is an educational opportunity.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Compassionate, dedicated, exceeded knowledgeable expectations

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

transform how the public respects wildlife and educate the public about encountering wildlife and the importance of nature.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
