The Privilege of Enjoying Wildlife

Thank you for allowing me to share with you my reverence for wildlife.

I had the privilege of growing up in a family that enjoyed, protected when it could, and cherished wildlife. As a child, I would watch my dad work to save baby birds that had fallen from their nests. Our family would periodically adopt a stray dog or cat. Turtles and snakes caught by us as kids were freed to enjoy their habitat, after we had the joy of viewing and handling them.
My hope is for a world where animals can be enjoyed, most times at a distance, and people can learn that our wildlife is a gift from God, an extension of creativity that deserves to be treated with respect and awe.
