If you have a spare minute today, please go and vote for Hope For Wildlife's entry for the Aviva Community Fund. They are trying to raise money to start a Marine Wildlife Rescue Centre.
Here's a little more info from their Facebook page:
Hope for Wildlife is vying for a top spot in this year's Aviva Community Fund competition and we NEED your
help! The Aviva Community Fund is awarding over $1 million to Canadian
charities and we need VOTES for Hope for Wildlife to WIN!
So what are you voting for? As many of you know, the
need for dedicated marine animal facilities is rising at Hope for
Wildlife. With our FIRST EVER successful releases of orphaned seals this
year, we now know that we have the skills, now we just need the
facilities! And its not just seals that will benefit - this is a Marine
Animal Rehab Centre - so the facilities will also cater to wayward
pelicans and oiled seabirds. We've submitted a proposal in the $50-$100
category to pay for the construction of a facility completely unique in
Nova Scotia. We're talking pumps, pools, caging, oiled birdwashing
facilities AND an oceanside location! View our full profile at
