Wildlife in Crisis will forever hold a very special place in my heart.
Thank you for the amazing opportunity to have been part of such a wonderful organization. Dara took me under her wing. She taught me how to “identify, catch and calm” distressed animals, how to care for and clean; feed; love and nurture and then educate people to respect the animals and the world that we live in. I have always had an immense love for animals and nature as a whole. Having been part of WIC exceeded my wildest dreams. I had a hands on teacher who, along with her husband and a baby on her back, lived to better this world.
Coming from South Africa I had never been in contact with raccoon’s or many of the other “American animals”. I was so impressed with the work WIC was doing. My summer t WIC felt like a week. It is so easy to get totally enthralled – making a positive difference.
Thank you Dara, witnessing your dedication and shear passion and compassion for nature is what led me to where I am today. Founder of Helping Animals Together—a companion animal rescue group in South Africa.
