Liberty Wildlife Rehabilitation Foundation, Inc.
March 27, 2011

I have always loved birds and saw a story on 3TV about Liberty Wildlife. The story mentioned that Liberty Wildlife had volunteer opportunities, so I looked into it and ended up joining their Orphan Care program. What a WONDERFUL experience! I helped take care of, and get educated on, many different kinds of baby birds. I was also able to assist the Medical Services team with some of the older birds.

What a phenomenal organization! The work they do to help preserve Arizona's native wildlife is beyond words. It's very sad that there are so many injured birds, but because of organizations such as Liberty Wildlife and the volunteers that work there, many of the animals get a second chance at life.

The Great!

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

Being able to watch owls and other birds that have been rehabilitated be released back into the wild.

Ways to make it better...

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

Streamline the paperwork needed to process incoming birds. It would save a lot of time if it was done on a computer instead of by hand. Start a campaign to educate people on the dangers they do (that they may not even be aware of) that can hurt AZ wildlife and what they can do to help protect the animals. Their education team does this, but it doesn't get out to the masses.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & I was part of the Orphan Care program which helped nurse injured and abandoned baby birds back to health.
