Mollie Hogan and her staff at Nature of Wildworks are my heroes. They lovingly provide lifelong care to over fifty animals in their sanctuary. As well as caring for the animals, their mission is to educate the community about the animals, conservation, and their part in all of it.
I first met Mollie Hogan when I invited her to bring her animals to do a presentation for my elementary school classroom. My students come from a disadvantaged area. Their experiences were limited mostly to what they saw on television. They excitedly made a personal connection with the animals, thrilled that each of them had a name. My students’ worlds became bigger, fuller. Other teachers recognized their value, and by the time I retired we had about twenty classrooms each year request programs. When I retired I chose to volunteer at Wildworks and again saw people’s lives enriched.
One of my favorite ways of supporting Nature of Wildworks is to be a month to month sponsor an animal. Actually two, a beautiful bobcat, and a little grey fox. This gives me a personal connection with the animals, and with Wildworks program and mission.

Molly Hogan who started and runs this organization is a wonderful person. She used to work at the Los Angeles Zoo. When the zoo was closing it's native wildlife exhibits Molly took in those animals and started her sanctuary. She's also a wildlife rehabilitator. I interviewed her on my cable show "Wildlife Rescue." I highly recommend this organization if you are interested in wildlife education.
