What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

The staff at the World Bird Sanctuary are thankful for:

•    The volunteers who can always be counted on to be there when you need them
•    Loyal supporters who suddenly appear from nowhere with donations of their time, cash or expertise
•    The children who pool their pennies or sponsor a fundraiser to help our hospital
•    The opportunity to work at a job that allows them to pursue their passion - helping the environment
Frazzle, the one-eyed Screech Owl, can be seen at our Environmental Education Center
The creatures that call WBS home are thankful for:

•    A second chance at life -- many of us wouldn't still be here if not for WBS
•    Regular meals -- you don't always get that in the wild
•    Excellent medical care for those of us who need it
•    Housing that keeps us safe from predators
Fred, the Royal Palm Turkey, can be seen strutting his stuff on the display line
And, oh yes--our star, Fred the Turkey, is thankful that he doesn't have the starring role on someone's Thanksgiving table today.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
