My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Wildlife, Inc., Anna Maria, FL, USA
Wildlife Inc. is my wildlife center. I've worked with them since 1999. They are the only wildlife rehab center in Manatee County that I would work with. The center rescues, rehabilitates, and releases thousands of birds, mammals, and reptiles each year that have been orphaned, sick, injured or any combination of the above, mostly due to human interaction. They offer quality educational programs to schools, and community centers. The center is quite small, yet very focused on their goals to support wildlife in this changing world. The center is of the belief that all life is precious and deserving of compassion and respect for their true nature. My role as a rescue person gives me the daily experience in which all wildlife commands the very best care the center has to offer. I'm so fortunate to be connected to this incredible organization.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
it has truly given me a better perspective of the animal kingdom.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
all wonderfully caring of all of the animals, regardless of their endangered designation. Volunteers are the backbone of the center.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
build a bigger rehabilitation center that would better serve the community, and actually hire people to help instead of relying on volunteers (who are absolutely wonderful - don't get me wrong).
Ways to make it better...
More animals could have been saved. more people could help staff the center to give the founders a break after over 20 years.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
volunteers and money. Volunteers come and go. Any donation to this organization is greatly appreciated, be it food, towels, or best of all money to purchase the proper foods and medicines necessary to facilitate the rehabilitation of the animals.
One thing I'd also say is that...
Wildlife Inc., has changed my world and they are a tremendous force for any wild animal.
