Hoots, Howls, and Hollers 01/10/2011

With the start of the New Year we begin to rev up the engines that produce our major fund raiser, Wishes for Wildlife. The event, brought to you by the Wildlife Guardians, traditionally focuses on all of our programs. This year, however, we want to shine a laser light on our education programs. This is the perfect opportunity to introduce our Junior Wildlife Guardian Club. We are most fortunate to have a Junior Guardian as one of our Honorary Benefit Chairs. Together with her grandmother, Ms. Sue Glawe, we will be introducing Miss Phoebe Glawe. Phoebe has helped us by releasing a rehabilitated Harris’ Hawk this past year and has been a featured contributor to our KidStuff page in our monthly e newsletter, Nature News. We look forward to the energy and freshness this addition will bring to our event.

Phoebe will be helping us with the Junior Wildlife Guardian Club. This group will be charged with assisting the Wildlife Guardians in supporting the work we do every day of the year, year after year. Perhaps you or someone that you know would be interested in joining a group like this. Follow this blog to learn more about the Club in the future.

With this in mind, it is never too early to learn the lesson of helping our fellow creatures, large or small, human or animal. It is never too early to get involved in something that you care about. It is never too early to experience the fulfillment of making a difference in the lives of those ill, injured, orphaned or just less fortunate.

It is clear that we need to stress the teaching of compassion and tolerance which is best done by mentoring compassion and tolerance. Let me reiterate; it is never too early and it is never too late to start…start now!
