My favorite part of volunteering is getting to see so many different types of animals and being educate the public of their importance!
Do you have a favorite or most memorable patient (past or present)?

In the REP, my favorite bird to work with is named Morgan and she is a sparred owl which is a hybrid of a barred owl and spotted owl.
