Meet an AWC Volunteer: Michael White

We are so fortunate to have Michael White as one of the Alabama Wildlife Center's dedicated animal care volunteers. He came on board with us in the fall of 2009 and has since become a much relied upon volunteer. Michael’s warm personality and obvious love of animals has endeared him to everyone he works with.

Hard working and caring, he is one of few committed to the weekly care of our resident snakes, making sure The Colonel and Scarlet do not get overlooked in the business of regular clinic activities.

When four little orphaned ducklings arrived separately this summer, Michael went beyond the call of duty with them—from feeding and spending much needed cuddle time with them (so they didn’t suffer from loneliness) to actually getting in our duck pond with them to encourage them to swim!

Always eager to learn more about wildlife rehabilitation, Michael has recently begun training as a Shift Supervisor. We look forward offering more and more learning opportunities to Michael and feel so lucky to have him as one of our team members.

Michael is also a multi-talented volunteer. In addition to all his animal care efforts, he also takes photos for us and even baked cookies to sell at our recent Craft & Bake Sale!

Thanks, Michael, for all your hard work and for bringing many smiles to our faces!
