Platform: Stewardship of the Land: Promoting Wildlife Rehabilitation

“No matter your race, color, creed or set of beliefs, we are all bound by our use of the land, water, animal and resources. We are all inhabitants of planet Earth and so we are bound by the fate of that planet. We have the decision to become stewards of nature or simply consumers of nature, as all share one irreversible reality. Through teaching wildlife rehabilitation to the next generation, I will help people become involved with being stewards of the land and animals.
