Here at Yggdrasil Urban Wildlife Rescue, we are thankful.
We are thankful for the emergency response volunteers who disrupt there lives on a regular basis to help wildlife in need.
We are thankful for the caring, loving souls who are our foster-care volunteers who nurture orphaned wildlife babies and then let them go to be wild when the time is right. It is a bittersweet kind of work and we are so grateful to those who take it on even when they know it will be painful.
We are thankful to each and every member of our society who stops there day to try to find help for an animal in trouble – to all those scared voices over the wildlife hotline, thank you. Now more than ever before we need those caring voices.
We are thankful to the individuals and the foundations who see what we do and want to support it even when we are so overloaded with the actual work that we struggle to get the grant applications in on time, or the thank you letters written. Thank you for seeing through the fog of need that surrounds us and taking our hand in support.
We are also thankful to every one of us humans who sees the need to protect wildlife and the environment we all share. We are walking in the shadow of climate change threatening everything we love, but Together we can still make a difference.
We are thankful for the Earth and the unending beauty and strength we find here.
What are you thankful for?
May you all have a loving and caring Thanksgiving.
