I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Having the staff let me help with all aspects of wildlife rehabilitation, going on injured animal calls and rescuing the animals myself to bring into the center and helping with educational programs.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
rally to raise more funds so that they could improve and expand their facility to help accommodate the wide amount and variety of species they deal with.
Would you volunteer for this group again?
For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?
Did the organization use your time wisely?
Would you recommend this group to a friend?
What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?
This is more related to funding, but being able to pay interns would be a nice bonus. Even if it was just a stipend. It is hard to do internships and hold a full time job. But it is usually not available to a non profit.
Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)
It taught me many critical skills to pursue a career in wildlife rehabilitation and in education. I felt like I had a mentor in one particular staff member who always had time to answer my questions. I met some great people and had some unforgettable experiences with wildlife.
How did this volunteer experience make you feel?
I felt it was invaluable career wise and I'm glad I volunteered there. I always wanted to help more and give the staff the support they needed.
