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

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteered over 1 1/2 years at the York Center for Wild LIfe. It was an amazing experience - to be so close to wild life, helping to feed, clean enclosures and be with an incredibly caring, dedicated staff. It's pretty tough during those long winter months in Maine, and they never miss a day - the animals need them and that's that. While always remembering that the animals are wild and being aided to go back to the wild, I made close acquaintanceships with porcupines, opossum, beautiful falcons, hawks and owls as well as innumerable birds, squirrels and ducks. I also got to see an albatross who had gotten blown inland during a storm. They never turn down a wounded animal and survive mainly on donations, which makes what they do even more admirable and amazing.

Role:  Volunteer & I primarily helped with cleaning enclosure and feeding animals. .
