My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Centre Wildlife Care, Lemont, PA, USA
As a longtime volunteer at Centre Wildlife Care, I can attest to the hugely positive impact this organization has on the community. CWC not only works to rehabilitate injured and orphaned wildlife, it also provides educational programs and outreach to people of all ages, and internships and work experience to students interested in wildlife and veterinary sciences.
Upwards of a thousand animals are helped each year due to the hard work of full- and part-time volunteers, interns, and local vets. CWC's geographical coverage continues to grow as other rehabilitators in the state have either retired or closed due to lack of funding. Despite the subsequent increase in animals brought in, CWC has maintained a high quality of care.
CWC's educational outreach includes wildlife programs offered to children, training seminars for students and animal professionals, and internships for college credit. On a smaller scale, the organization seeks to educate the public about wildlife habits and injury prevention via its website and emails.
Overall, Centre Wildlife Care is a fantastic organization. Their benefit to local wildlife is fairly well-known and appreciated. Their benefit to education is just as important.
