Liberty Wildlife Rehabilitation Foundation, Inc.
April 5, 2013

Liberty Wildlife is one of the coolest organizations I know of. Not only do they help return thousands of ill or injured animals back to the wild, their education programs are terrific. I have volunteered in this area, and it is hard to describe the reaction of children and adults when they see a great horned owl, an American Kestrel or a turkey vulture up close and learn the story of how they came to be injured and recovered. These wildlife ambassadors teach people about the wonders of nature, even though their lifetime in the natural world has ended due to injury or disease. Over 300 dedicated volunteers contribute to the cause of helping wildlife, and many get back as much as their contribute!

Liberty Wildlife takes in injured wildlife and provides medical and rehabilitative care until the animals can be returned to the wild. This is an invaluable service in a metropolitan community where many human activities adversely affect wild animals. I have volunteered for the organization in many roles and was a member of the staff for four years. I have always been struck by the incredible impact wild animals have on humans, those that find them injured in the wild, or those that see the education ambassadors at outreach events. Liberty Wildlife serves the human community as much as the animals.

The Great!

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

I have seen the faces of children and adults as they gazed at a wild owl, or hawk, I have organized rescues of injured animals, I have seen a wild hawk soar into the sky after months of medical care.

Ways to make it better...

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

See them moved into a new, larger facility where they could expand their work, and allow the public to visit for on sight education programs.
