Review for Wildlife Center of Virginia, Waynesboro, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Healing injured wildlife, and teaching the public about wild animals is the mission of The Wildlife Center of Virginia. Many animals are injured either directly or indirectly by the actions of humans, so I am glad to help restore them to health by supporting The Wildlife Center, both financially and as a volunteer. In addition to rescuing and healing injured animals, the Wildlife Center also works hard, by means of their Education Ambassadors, to teach members of the public, particularly children, how we can live in harmony with all the other animals with which we share this planet.

Review for Wildlife Center of Virginia, Waynesboro, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a Wildlife Center of Virginia donor for many many years, but only realized relatively recently that I could have been volunteering as well! Since I started volunteering, I have learned by personal experience what a fabulous job of teaching the Center does. I knew they cared for injured wildlife of all sorts, but in addition to that they are a teaching hospital with veterinary students from all over the world spending varying amounts of time getting hands on experience with an extraordinary variety of animals, and then going out and sharing their knowledge with others wherever they go. With the relatively recent addition of "Critter Cams" that have created a growing "Critter Nation" with members from as far away as Australia, it is clear that the education part of their mission is exploding!
