A Call For Volunteers- Adopt A Duck!!

East Valley Wildlife was founded in 1989 with a small group of volunteers who decided to make a difference in the lives of our native bird species.  We rescued doves, sparrows, song birds and yes….even pigeons.  Our volunteers rehabilitated the orphaned and the injured and released those ready for freedom.  In the process we evolved into a large network of volunteers, spread throughout the East Valley area of Arizona.  Nancy, our Founder and Director, started a special “team” of waterfowl volunteers and those kind individuals have attempted to rescue domesticated waterfowl who have been abused and abandoned on the canals of our area.  Domesticated ducks do not usually survive amongst native waterfowl since they lack the necessary skills  to feed themselves.  These domestic ducks fall victim to both human and animal predators.  We are seeking more volunteers who can raise abandoned ducklings, ducks and other waterfowl.  People with “horse property” are desirable since their properties can provide the space needed.  Also, there are no homeowner association restrictions that might prevent adoption of ducks or geese.  So, if you know of someone who would be willing to take adopt a duck, please check out our website  www.eastvalleywildlife.org to learn more about our volunteer program, education and contact us to Adopt A Duck!
