AmeriCorps returns to Wildlife Images to help us fulfill our mission of Saving Wildlife. The help of AmeriCorps team Blue 7 during this busy season of readiness is crucial. This year, Blue 7 has helped out on projects ranging from painting to renovating enclosures for Animal Ambassadors. We couldn’t be more grateful for their hardworking, service oriented and positive attitudes!
By the time they end their service at Wildlife Images, Blue 7 will have removed 20,000 pounds of non-native species fro 2 acres of animal enclosures, take down 1,000 feet of fencing, make 16 enrichment items for residents, and remodel both the Big Cat Run and the grey fox habitat. During their visit Blue 7 has also been included in events like the Japanese Culture & Comedy Night, Agnes’ Meet & Greet, and has enjoyed time relaxing at their onsite residence.
“I am so happy our team is working with Wildlife Images this round, We’ve been welcomed here with open arms and look forward to contributing to the expansion and upkeep of Wildlife Images through fixing an animal enclosure to creating a picnic area for public use,” said Haley Coates. Coates is one of 9 young adults with Blue 7. The members, who come from all across the U.S., will spend 10 months serving together. They will be at Wildlife Images until April 11.
