Wildlife Rockstar Program Testimonials
"Your group preformed at our school today (Indian Landing in Penfield) Just wanted to say thank you! Our students LOVED it. One of the most exciting events of the year! Thanks for sharing your wonderful program with us!"
Over February break, my grandchildren and I had the privilege and thrill of experiencing The Wildlife Rockstars educational outreach program at Rochester Museum and Science Center. The presenters and handlers of these rare and unique wild animals from around the world were well organized, informative, engaging, safety conscious, and great communicators. They provided an up close encounter that allows the audience a rare glimpse into the wonders of nature. Equally impressive, is that this program is run by members of Bridges For Brain Injury. It was explained that survivors of brain injuries and others with disabilities grow and gain renewed confidence through this part of their rehabilitation.
Do not miss an opportunity to see the amazing animals at Wildlife Rockstars and to support the great work at Bridges For Brain Injury!
"My name is Liz Albertorio and I am a co-ccordinator of a science outreach program sponsored by Dr. Keith Nehrke, faculty member at the University of Rochester. We had the pleasure to host the Wildlife Rockstars as part of our last science outreach session for the semester at the Carlson YMCA. We chose Wildlife Rockstars to speak to our kids because their mission to provide outreach education on wildlife animals paired very well with our mission to expose kids to different topics in science, and wildlife conservation. They did a fantastic job explaining each animal, and they handled the (sometimes tough!) questions our kids had with energy and passion. I speak on my behalf, as a co-coordinator of this portion of the program, and I recommend the Wildlife Rockstar as a novel addition to any science outreach program."
"The birthday party for my nephews was awesome! Everyone raved about it!!!!!! "
"You guys were a total hit!! Such amazing people doing amazing things! Thank you so much!"
"I just wanted to tell you how much the kindergartners enjoyed the animal presentation today. John and his staff were absolutely amazing and extremely knowledgeable. The children learned so much! We look forward to experiencing the presentation again next year with a new group of children!"
"Bridges for Brain Injury is an outstanding program and resource for both the adults in the program as well as the service they provide for the community. We have had the program visit our childcare center on two separate occasions. The children were really excited to learn about the exotic animals that the members bring. The ambassadors answered all of the many "wonders" that the children were curious about. Our teachers were fascinated by the personal experiences that each person shared. This program is well organized and the ambassadors are well prepared. I highly recommend this program and what it stands for".

"I just wanted to follow up with the visit you set up this past Friday evening at the Middlesex Valley Elem. school. Your program was genuine, from the heart, and amazing. I could not have expected more! As families were leaving, I stood at the door thanking them for attending. Almost each family said that this was one of the best events that we have hosted, and it was a perfect balance between the animals for kids and parents, and the stories that were shared. They wanted more!
We would love to have you back!"
The program was absolutely amazing and I loved it so much, as did our patrons.
The group was punctual and very professional and SO great at what they do! We had over 100 people here with several young children and everyone just LOVED the program. In fact, I just re-booked them for another program in July!
Thanks for what you do and providing a wonderful program to libraries in our area!!
