I love watching the wildlife in my back yard. I think we all do. Unfortunately human encroachment is taking its toll on Southern Arizona's wildlife. If we want to protect this unique and beautiful environment, it's up to the community to be aware of what they might be doing in their every day lives that impacts wildlife. Tucson Wildlife Center takes in hundreds of orphaned and injured wild animals every year with the sole purpose of seeing them once again flourish back to their natural habitats. This is a truly a needed and worthy charity that has over 70 volunteers and rehabilitators who care about each other and every animal that comes through their doors.

What impresses me the most is the time and dedication of many volunteers including professionals on call 24/7 for wildlife rescues. The Executive Director accepts no pay which certainly shows what this non profit is all about. Continuing research, technology and perseverance keeps this rehabilitation center above the rest. For them, all creatures great and small are looked at as critical to our existence and treated as such.

It is a pleasure to work for this organization because it is always growing, improving and helping every wild animal, no matter what the species, that comes through the door. They concentrate on getting the rescued patients, after they have healed, back to the wild with their original families, and familiar territory. They are helping close to 800 large animals every year!
