Tucson Wildlife Center is a haven for those who are injured, orphaned or literally lost ( such is the case of the brown pelican.) I volunteered for 2 and a half years and treasured being a part of TWC, but I had to relocate recently. My favorite job was cleaning up the yards of the residents (those unalbe to be released.) I loved having the greathorns act as "yard foreman" as I raked beneath them, and hosed off the mesh to cool them down in the hot summer months. It was the same with the screetch owls, a special harris hawk and a redtail, peregrines and others. Being able to assist in the rehabilitation of a golden eagle as it regained it's flight strength was wonderful and fulfilling. What we do there benfits our precious wildlife in a direct and important manner. It is invaluable in it's ability to rehabilitate, protect and relocate animals and birds for their highest benefit. Much of the time what we do goes unnoticed. We do our best to inform and educate the public, but it just takes once for someone's heart to be touched by the life of a wild creature - seeking only to live free in natures balance. We are a part of that. Assisting in this endeavor, will enhance the lives of countless animals.
