Working at Wildlife in Crisis has been unlike any other position I’ve held. Having never visited the facility before I began the internship, I could only gather impressions through the website and phone interviews. Everything I heard and read made me want to be a part of it. It sounded like WIC was a bit of the cure for human ignorance, giving back without reservations. It has been refreshing to work for a selfless organization that dedicates an immeasurable amount of time and energy to these animals. Working entirely for the welfare of other creatures has been incredibly gratifying. It was rewarding to witness the release of the animals, especially the raccoons because I had been working with them since they were little. I have been blessed to have had the opportunity to help rehabilitate and raise numerous injured and orphaned animals alongside such talented and wonderful people. I’ve also been touched by people authentically concerned for wildlife, and it has amazed me that there are many compassionate people who go out of their way to save these animals. It makes me happy to see people genuinely wanting to help, and I hope that as WIC grows, more realize their vital role in helping save these animals.
