Thanks for the picture and information. I hope we will learn to protect nature; otherwise nature may just do away with us.

Thanks Donna! My husband and I really enjoyed the sanctuary. It's about 40 miles from where we live and I'd love to do volunteer work there if only it were closer to home. The people that run the place give it their all and are so wonderful!
