Review for Blue Mountain Wildlife, Pendleton, OR, USA
To Whom it May Concern:
Lynn and Bob Tompkins of Blue Mountain Wildlife (BMW) are two of the most special people I have ever met. They are absolutely dedicated to their cause to rehabilitate wildlife and educate both children and adults about the need to care for wildlife and to promote conservation of wildlife. They have been mending injured and gunshot wildlife for decades and represent a beacon of hope in this world of senseless destruction.
A friend of mine and I once found a gunshot Great Horned Owl and brought it to BMW for treatment and care. With a broken bone in one wing and two steel pellets in the body, Lynn was able to use an adjacent wing bone as a splint to allow time for the broken bone to heal before releasing the bird back to the wild. If she had not professionally repaired the damage to this bird she would have had to destroy it, but because of her skill and care we have one more live owl to hunt our gophers and mice in our pasture.
As one of the founding members of the Pendleton Bird Club, I have asked Lynn on several occasions if she and Bob could give a presentation to the club and not once have they turned down our request. In fact, they ALWAYS bring injured birds of prey to share with our membership and to educate us on how each species interacts with our environment and the dangers that they routinely face here in Umatilla County from car strikes, gunshot wounds and other dangers. Lynn and Bob schedule visits to our local schools to educate our school children on the dangers these birds face and how important it is to never harm these special creatures
I would give Blue Mountain Wildlife a score of 10 out of 10 for all they do to help our wildlife and to educate the public about the need to care and protect wildlife whenever the opportunity presents itself. Lynn and Bob are some of the finest people my wife and I have ever met and we do not hesitate to encourage others to support and donate money to their programs for wildlife care and rehabilitation.
