You may remember that we posted a blog about our volunteering work we are doing for Hope For Wildlife. You can read it here.
Today we got a message from Ashley that they had some animals to be released that had recuperated and they were set to be released in our area.
Oh YES! This is the icing on the cake. The day we dream about. Every week we transport animals that have been injured, abandoned by a parent, or been hurt by humans. Today is the best as it is the day the animal is well enough to go back into the wild.
So we drove to the center in New Minas (about a half hour away) and picked up two animals set for release.
The first was a snapping turtle who was getting released near Middleton.
We went back to the park that it was found in and travelled down a quiet path along the water and released him. Here is the video.
