Review for Center for Wildlife, Inc., Cape Neddick, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was an intern at CFW a few summers ago, and one day I was sitting at the desk when a large, gruff, mechanic-type looking man came in. In his hands was a small washcloth, which he held out to me. Inside, was a nearly newborn mouse. Apparently the mice had nested inside his lawnmower, and he "didn't want to talk about" the rest of the story. He was close to tears. I think that moment really exemplified the importance of CFW to me. People want to be able to help wildlife and rarely have the means to do so. It's important for people to give back to wildlife, and it helps raise awareness, especially with regards to suffering turtle populations in the area. Everyone who works there is worth their weight in gold. I mean that, truly. It was a wonderful experience, they treat their interns and volunteers like family, and their role in the community is so important.

Role:  Volunteer & I was an intern for the summer, so I did a bit of everything.
