When I first moved to the Sierra Nevada Foothills, I quickly learned of the magnificent wildlife whose land I was sharing. A bond was established and through that trust, I was allowed to approach closely for intimate photographs and observation. Each animal holds within, a different personality and a different story to tell. I am honored to have learned from their sensitive souls, their loving ways and their unimaginable strengths.
This has all been possible thanks to the volunteers of Sierra Wildlife Rescue. Their training classes are professional and informative. They teach individuals how to work closely and safely with wildlife. Their community exhibits with live animals are fascinating for young and old. Their education on how to co-exist with wildlife is invaluable. And through this all, I have come to know a special breed of human…a Sierra Wildlife Volunteer. Each has a depth of compassion and dedication rarely witnessed in our troubled world. They are true heroes as they work selflessly to save injured or abandoned animals. They will go above and beyond to restore health and quality of life to the animals in their charge. We are blessed to have these dedicated people available for consultation, rehabilitation, education and training.
