Hope for Wildlife: True Stories of Animal Rescue
Since 1997, thousands of animals have been saved through the tireless efforts of the staff and volunteers at Hope for Wildlife, a Nova Scotia wildlife rehabilitation center. Some animals’ stories were so unique that they garnered national attention—such as founder Hope Swinimer’s battle with the department of natural resources over Gretel, an endangered pine marten. Each creature comes with its own challenges, either through a difficult injury or a quirky personality—like Lucifer the inexplicably bald and ornery raccoon—but each patient leaves an indelible mark on the lives of those around them.
Hope for Wildlife tells the stories of fourteen different wild animals that have passed through the center. Color photographs of the animals and the center’s efforts supplement the text, and info boxes offer further information on the region’s wildlife. The stories in Hope for Wildlife are educational, heartwarming, and sometimes heartbreaking—but always filled with hope.Buy Hope for Wildlife Now
