Center for Wildlife, Inc.
February 14, 2011

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.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My own life. CFW was just one stepping stone of many to get me to where I want to be.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them more money! They deserve every cent.

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