A couple of folks have asked me why I did not write a year-end blog post, like so many of my colleagues did. The answer is simple; as the saying goes, “Hindsight is always 20/20”, or in this case 2020. I would rather share my foresight and talk about the year ahead—our 2021 vision!

I’m grateful for my colleagues who have helped make that possible. I’m grateful for the courage, commitment, and resiliency of my colleagues who have gone into the Center.
Reading through all of the Year In Review posts so far though, I’ve noticed a trend; sure, life is wacky and crazy right now, but some things haven’t changed.
Sometimes, though, we find a way to make a special moment out of the circumstances we are handed.
2020 will be remembered for a lot of things, but for me, it will be remembered as a year of saying good-bye.
The strength that everyone at the Wildlife Center shows in the face of adversity – and the support that they’ve shown each other – really shows.
Another moment – probably my most memorable case at WCV – was a little Carolina Wren (CAWR #20-3689). This sweet little wren came in on 12/12/2020 after having its leg stuck in a mousetrap.
Though the Wildlife Center was closed to the public this year, there was no shortage of visitors around the Center grounds.
The best way that I found these little adventures was volunteering to transport and release many of our patients this spring, summer, and fall.
As a newer member of the WCV team, I was lucky enough to have an opportunity to see how the Center works to help animals from both the perspective of a rescuer and an employee.
