Back to the Wild in 'serious financial crisis'

Wildlife rehabilitation and nature education center in need of help.

Back to the Wild director and founder Mona Rutger wants to make one thing clear: She and her husband, Bill, don't plan on closing the center's doors.

"I will find a way to keep these doors open," Rutger said, referring to the Castalia wildlife rehabilitation and nature education center. Each year, the center receives more than 2,500 injured and orphaned wild animals.

She said she's been inundated with calls from people who said they've heard from media reports or other sources that Back to the Wild plans to close.

There just isn't enough money to go around. It's time to let nature takes it course and stop interfering.

Not bad 'rickross2' In one sentence, you've made me agree, disagree, completely see your point and question my own conclusions. In short, you've made me think. Thanks

Wheres all the environmentalists at that killed California's farms cause of a smelt, its really amazing you have all these groups going around killing jobs and this and that but never give any money to help a good thing like this. This place does good work but its time for the nature lovers to put their money where there mouth is.just saying

That's my point as well. I appreciate the cause, I can't afford to help. I know most people are tapped out as well. Our taxes are way over tapped. Put up or shut up is about All that is left.
