Review for Wildlife Works Inc, Youngwood, PA, USA
Wildlife Works' (Youngwood, Pa) volunteers are the kindest people on Earth. They work tirelessly to save all orphaned or injured wild animals that are brought to them. Their director, Beth, is an extremely wise old human owl. She is a compassionate, knowledgable licensed wildlife rehabber who also enjoys teaching others about wildlife. I have brought numerous injured mammals and birds over the last ten years to Wildlife Works and each was treated with great compassion. This organization donates its time to save all wild animals, not just "exciting" ones. This organization doesn't discriminate. They care for everything from lowly deer mice to exciting, endangered Golden Eagles.
My sons favorite days in elementary school were the days when a Wildlife Works volunteer brought in an owl, falcon, or other animal to teach the school children. The volunteers from this organization spend hours each year teaching the children about how humans can help wildlife species. Although my children's science lessons addressed the importance of conservation, the Wildlife Works volunteer really implanted the importance of being good environment caretakers into them.
Wildlife Works also volunteers their knowledge to the adult communities in Western Pennsylvania. They visit various adult clubs in Western Pennsylvania each month and often bring a wildlife species for viewing. Wildlife Works is always very active on Earth Day. They always find a venue on this day to teach about preserving the Earth for all species. I and many others recently enjoyed learning from a Wildlife Works volunteer at the Fred Roger's Center at St. Vincent's College in Latrobe, Pa. The "teaching arm" of Wildlife Works provides a very valuable service to Western Pennsylvania.
