That said, it is apparently extremely difficult to NOT get a selfie with the newly found, cute looking baby owl. Or at least one, because you have to make sure you get the right light. I also understand how easy it is to get attached to rescued animals, but comparing a crow found just hours before to your child still sounds a bit weird to me. You might think I am exaggerating a bit here, but these situations actually happened. Like that one person that brought us a bat, but demanded to check our intensive care unit before entrusting it to our care. This same person phoned one day later to complain about such a reasonable request being denied (despite us still taking the bat in). Or those several people that tried to keep a newborn animal in their own house, only to realize months later that the deer/crane/groundhog did not suddenly turn into a pet, at which point they were forced to ask for our help.
I get it, I do this job because I love animals. I understand how every single one of them is unique, special and worth remembering. But at the same time, in the very same word ''wildlife'' there is a strong suggestion about how we should keep that delicate life we decided to take care of.

It was good to know that you are still working with World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Aside form the experience you may possibly gain from it. casting for the animals is indeed a satisfying feeling. But we should never do it just because we want to feel something good about ourselves. We should do it just because we want to help those animals who are in need. As we all know, deforestation has been affecting them so much and they will suffer the most if we will not make several changes about our behavior.
I find it amazing how the mere presence of a furry friend can help you get through the day or provide stress relief when you need it. I have a friend who's having a hard time adjusting to this pandemic, and he's looking for advice on how to unwind once his work is over. I'll be sure to relay this information to him so that he'd consider getting one of those puppies we saw the other day.
