Liberty Wildlife Rehabilitation Foundation, Inc.
March 25, 2011

I have been a volunteer at Liberty Wildlife for almost 4 years now. I especially love working in the Orphan Care (OC) department, but since OC is seasonal, I work year-round in medical services. It is a very fulfilling to be part of rehabilitating sick and injured animals.

I'm also an avid birder and volunteering for Liberty gives me the opportunity to see so many birds close up; it's rather thrilling to see the different morphs of birds that would be near impossible to see in the wild. Recently, I had the opportunity to assist senior medical services feed condor #122 who was at Liberty for rehabilitation from lead poisoning. I never thought I would get to see a condor that up-close and personal; what an amazing bird!

I'm currently a graduate student with an interest in population ecology and modelling avian populations. Liberty has been a terrific source of inspiration for my research and an invaluable source of data and information.

The Great!

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

Last fall I got to release a red-tailed hawk back into the wild, it was very gratifying to see our hard work pay off as he soared into the air, landed on a sahuaro cactus and surveyed its new surroundings.

Ways to make it better...

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

Maybe get things a little more organized.
