Nevada Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Employees Donate to Wildlife Infirmary for Nevada
Employees of the Nevada Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (NDCNR) in Carson City recently held their annual fundraisers for local non-profit organizations. This year, the staff managed to raise an impressive $1,800. One of the beneficiaries of their generosity is the Wild Animal Infirmary for Nevada, also known as WAIF.
WAIF is a non-profit organization that relies on donations and is operated by a dedicated group of volunteers. Their mission is to provide care for sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife. Once the animals have recovered, WAIF ensures their safe return to their natural habitats.
On a Tuesday, Suzette Phelan, representing WAIF, gratefully accepted a $600 donation from the NDCNR staff and Carson City resident Richard H. The purpose of the donation was to raise awareness of the wildlife recovery efforts undertaken by WAIF. In addition to the donation, Brian from WAIF gave an owl presentation in the lobby of the NDCNR building, further educating the public about their cause.
