Hello from the US

Post by risikia » Sat Sep 15, 2012 7:30 pm

Nice to meet you all. I joined the forum quite a while ago but at the time was a bit too shy to say hello, I do hope you'll pardon my rudeness. You all seem to be a very friendly and open community :)

I stumbled across the Tamaskan a few years ago by accident while researching arctic breeds and have been an admirer ever since. They're really such a wonderful breed, I'm hoping sometime within the next year or so that I'll be able to bring home my first puppy ^_^

Let's see, a little about myself... I am a committed volunteer with a local 501c3 organization dedicated to the rehabilitation and release of all North American wildlife and am myself currently studying to get my rehabber's license. Though I'm still at home right now, I'll be graduating from high school this coming spring and venturing out on my own. I very much hope my age will not be of any offense ^_^

Anyway, I look forward to learning all I can from everyone, and hope to one day soon be found suitable as a Tamaskan owner :)

There’s a battle between two wolves inside us all.
One is Evil. It’s anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.
The other is Good. It’s joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness and truth.

The wolf that wins? The one you feed!

~ Cherokee Proverb

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity... I'm not sure about the former.

Welcome to the forum! :D Sounds like a very interesting voluntary job! What kind of animals do you have to rehabilitate?

Thank you everyone, very nice to make your acquaintance :) And yes it is a very interesting job! We work with all kinds of animals, though we specialize in North American wildlife we've gotten a few exotics from unqualified owners in the exotic pet trade (an arctic fox, some macaws, so on... nothing too big yet though, we're still a fairly small organization). Actually we work a lot with birds of prey; hawks, owls, vultures, and we're licensed as the only eagle recovery center within 100 miles. They are really amazing animals, and very intelligent! I swear some of these birds are actually smarter than me lol.

I've actually recently been introduced as a handler (meaning I go along on educational programs and hold one of the birds and talk about them and their impact on the environment... that's actually why it's taken me so long to get around to replying, so sorry!) and I can say without exaggeration that the birds call all the shots, though I have to say, most of them actually seem rather proud to be representatives :D Speaking of which, we have one very persnickety educational pelican who literally has run of the entire facility, the little diva...

Welcome to the forum!
I am jealous to hear you get to work with raptors. I lived in Vermont for a few years and a friend is a licensed bird bander. I use to go to his blinds and help with the banding. I had the privilege of seeing hawks, falcons, owls and some song birds up close. They are amazing creatures!!!
