Wildlife Defenders Wildlife Outreach Programs

Wildlife Defenders

The Wildlife Defenders Program is a wildlife education outreach group run by the day program members of Bridges for Brain Injury Inc, all who are adult survivors of brain injuries. Sharing live native and exotic species, the Wildlife Defenders visit schools, youth groups, nursing homes, community events, and the Canandaigua Veterans Administration, and present formal and informal programs and displays. They provide interesting and stimulating information about their animal ambassadors and encourage environmental and wildlife conservation awareness. Members also share their personal injury and rehabilitation stories and discuss the importance of safety and prevention practices. While running this community based program, members work on personal goals such as socialization, organization, communication, memory retention, planning and pre-employment skills in addition to improving their self-esteem and confidence.

This year alone the Wildlife Defenders have been seen by over 6,000 school children and hundreds of seniors and people in the community!
We are very proud to have presented this year at:
The Canandaigua Veterans Administration
The Rochester Museum and Science Center
The Pittsburgh Pet Expo
The Turning Stone Casino Sportsman Expo
Roseland Water Park
Bristol Mountain Ski Resort
Pioneer Libraries (over 40 libraries in 6 counties!)
Ontario County & Wayne County Nursing Homes
Schools, Scout Groups & So Much More!
