Liberty Wildlife is one of the coolest organizations I know of. Not only do they help return thousands of ill or injured animals back to the wild, their education programs are terrific. I have volunteered in this area, and it is hard to describe the reaction of children and adults when they see a great horned owl, an American Kestrel or a turkey vulture up close and learn the story of how they came to be injured and recovered. These wildlife ambassadors teach people about the wonders of nature, even though their lifetime in the natural world has ended due to injury or disease. Over 300 dedicated volunteers contribute to the cause of helping wildlife, and many get back as much as their contribute!

Liberty Wildlife takes in injured wildlife and provides medical and rehabilitative care until the animals can be returned to the wild. This is an invaluable service in a metropolitan community where many human activities adversely affect wild animals. I have volunteered for the organization in many roles and was a member of the staff for four years. I have always been struck by the incredible impact wild animals have on humans, those that find them injured in the wild, or those that see the education ambassadors at outreach events. Liberty Wildlife serves the human community as much as the animals.

The Great!

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

I have seen the faces of children and adults as they gazed at a wild owl, or hawk, I have organized rescues of injured animals, I have seen a wild hawk soar into the sky after months of medical care.

Ways to make it better...

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

See them moved into a new, larger facility where they could expand their work, and allow the public to visit for on sight education programs.

Liberty Wildlife is an organization of highly dedicated volunteers helping Arizona's native wildlife. Every injured animal that arrives at Liberty has a bad experience with human caused conditions; wires, windows, poison, sticky traps, cats, etc. The goal of Liberty is to have no animals on premises, having returned all back to the wild. A significant percentage of those that are treated at Liberty are indeed returned. The Education group of Liberty does a great job of educating the publicv, school children, civic groups on living with wildlife. I'm in my 16th year as a volunteer at Liberty.

I am in my 15th year as a volunteer for Liberty Wildlife. I do a number of things for Liberty including Medical Services work treating injured wildlife, construction of new or expanded enclosures for both rehab and education animals and rerpairs that are always needed on an aging facility. It is a real thrill to work with a California Condor to start my shift and end the day with a Hummingbird. We are really one of the only advocates that these wild creatures have as they continue to experience serious injuries because of man. Cars, windows, poisons, electrical wires, monofiliment fish line, habitat loss are just a few. Alm ost 55% of our patients are returned to the wild. Education is a critical part of the role that Liberty Wildlife plays in the Community.

I have always loved birds and saw a story on 3TV about Liberty Wildlife. The story mentioned that Liberty Wildlife had volunteer opportunities, so I looked into it and ended up joining their Orphan Care program. What a WONDERFUL experience! I helped take care of, and get educated on, many different kinds of baby birds. I was also able to assist the Medical Services team with some of the older birds.

What a phenomenal organization! The work they do to help preserve Arizona's native wildlife is beyond words. It's very sad that there are so many injured birds, but because of organizations such as Liberty Wildlife and the volunteers that work there, many of the animals get a second chance at life.

The Great!

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

Being able to watch owls and other birds that have been rehabilitated be released back into the wild.

Streamline the paperwork needed to process incoming birds. It would save a lot of time if it was done on a computer instead of by hand. Start a campaign to educate people on the dangers they do (that they may not even be aware of) that can hurt AZ wildlife and what they can do to help protect the animals. Their education team does this, but it doesn't get out to the masses.

This organization rehabilitates all injured or orphaned native Arizona animals. Over 3500 animals come to Liberty each year. Volunteer based, the people at Liberty devote an extraordinary amount of time and talent to saving animals. In addition, there is an extensive education program for school children and civic groups providing information about Arizona's animals and what the public can do to protect the natural world as part of our legacy for future generations. The group reaches people in every corner of Arizona and rescues animals from all over the state. It has been selected to provide non-eagle feathers to Native Americans throughout the country as part of a US Gov. pilot project. Liberty is a wonderful organization, well established and respected. It's an honor to be a part of the team.

I have been thrilled to be involved in releasing a red tailed hawk rehabilitated at Liberty Wildlife. The animal had a broken wing, needed medical attention, a stay in ICU for medication, a period of time healing and gathering strength in a flight cage. When the time came to release him, we went to an area that would be compatible with the habits of this hawk. With gloves on, I held him, wished him well and released him. He was strong and flew beautifully. Liberty has an impressive success rate!

Move to a larger facility ASAP!

I started at Liberty Wildlife 1 year ago. I worked in Orphan Care. I fell in Love with Liberty Wildlife and all the wonderful people that do amazing work there every day. The volunteers there are very dedicated, hardworking and generous people. After a full season in Orphan Care I moved to Medical services, in this position I have seen miracles through the work of the senor Med Staff.

The Great!

There was a beautiful Harris Hawk that came in with a severely broken wing. They didn’t think they would be able to repair it, I was I aloud to stay and witness the surgery. Even after surgery they weren’t sure it would take and heal. That bird was fully rehabilitated and released back into the wild. This is only one of hundreds of stories. The people at Liberty wildlife inspire me and give me a desire to do more each and everyday.

I wouldn't change anything, I wish I had the ability to volunteer more time and to give them more financial support. I do feel that Liberty Wildlife is a more than worthy organization.

A larger facility would have been great, but they make the most out of what they have and how they do all the things they do is amazing.

It most certainly did.

It has also made me feel important, like I can make a difference. I love volunteering at Liberty Wildlife.

Volunteering at Liberty Wildlife is such an amazing part of my life! I have been volunteering for over a year now and I feel so blessed to be a part of seeing and helping so many amazing birds! I feel like I have a second family volunteering there, and I continue to learn such amazing things from the people I volunteer with about the birds we rescue and rehabilitate. It has always been clear that everyone involved is so dedicated and truly cares for all of the birds. I hope I am able to be a part of Liberty Wildlife for as long as I am living in AZ. :-)

Liberty Wildlife is 1 of the most important Animal Rescue places in the great state of AZ with 1 of the most dedicated group of animal lovers I have ever met!
We rescue fallen birds and animals all year long at any time of day or night. Thousands of birds are rehabilitated and released back
into the wild yearly.
Volunteers will drive countless miles to rescue hurt birds and mammals.
This organization is 100% volunteer based and is an unsung hero in our community

I've seen first hand, the rehabilitation of hundreds of birds. I know that people have even taken it upon themselves to make sure that shore birds from CA get back to the coast! Seriously, Terry Stevens chronicles the weekly miracles of this volunteer organization. It's amazing what the love of wildlife can do!

I would love to see Liberty Wildlife in it's dream facility next to the Phoenix Zoo, even if it meant that they would no longer be 6 miles from my home.

I have been a volunteer at Liberty Wildlife for almost 4 years now. I especially love working in the Orphan Care (OC) department, but since OC is seasonal, I work year-round in medical services. It is a very fulfilling to be part of rehabilitating sick and injured animals.

I'm also an
avid birder and volunteering for Liberty gives me the opportunity to see so many birds close up; it's rather thrilling to see the different morphs of birds that would be near impossible to see in the wild. Recently, I had the opportunity to assist senior medical services feed condor #122 who was at Liberty for rehabilitation from lead poisoning. I never thought I would get to see a condor that up-close and personal; what an amazing bird!

I'm currently a graduate student with an interest in population ecology and modelling avian populations. Liberty has been a terrific source of inspiration for my research and an invaluable source of data and information.

Last fall I got to release a red-tailed hawk back into the wild, it was very gratifying to see our hard work pay off as he soared into the air, landed on a sahuaro cactus and surveyed its new surroundings.

Maybe get things a little more organized.

Liberty Wildlife provides medical care and rehabilitation to native AZ species and is working diligently to preserve nature in a way that is unique and unparalleled. In addition, they are performing top notch educational programs to teach conservation and preservation in various settings throughout the state and region. I am proud to be a part of this special organization and know that our work is making a positive impact on the environment.

Build a larger facility to provide better care and have the capability of having increased public exposure as well as an increased volunteer team size.

I became associated with Liberty Hotline through an article in the local newspaper asking for volunteers. In my time with the hotline, I have participated in the rescue of all sorts of Arizona wildlife from eagles to baby rabbits. Liberty never turns an injured animal away, even if it is not a species that can be kept in their facility for a long period of time. They treat it and then find the proper location for it to rehab.
I also feed baby birds in their orphan care program and I see the loving care given every baby that comes to us.
These are wonderful people who give their time unstintingly to care for the wild animals of Arizona.

The Great!

caring for wild animals until they are capable of caring for themselves and living free as they were meant to do.

provide enough money for a larger facility so more animals could be helped and we could open to the public for education about the animals around us.
