At-risk youth helping wildlife
Hobbitstee Wildlife Refuge
At Hobbitstee Wildlife Refuge they assist sick, orphaned and injured wildlife return back to their natural habitat. They work to identify problem areas and put measures in place to prevent said wildlife from being in distress. They educate the general public on how to peacefully coexist with wildlife, and they participate and initiate research to improve wildlife rehabilitation and wildlife well being in general.
The majority of Hobbitstee Wildlife's volunteer base consists of young offenders, at risk youth and adult offenders. This offers them an opportunity for meaningful activities which impact the environment and the people involved in a positive way.
