“We are truly honored by your invitation to be publicly associated with Wild Bird Aid. All over our planet, those of our fellow animals fortunate enough not to be directly subjugated by human beings are still under threat from hunting, wildlife killing campaigns, habitat loss, pollution and climate change. Your rescue and rehabilitation work through Wild Bird Aid inspires us because it is informed by an inclusive vision of nonviolence that embraces the inherent dignity and worth of both our fellow humans and our fellow animals. To intervene when and where one can, to come to the aid of individuals who have been displaced, harmed, or orphaned, those who need a safe place to regain their strength and self-sufficiency -- all of which are so central to your daily work -- requires skill, understanding, patience and courage. It also requires the encouragement and support of a community of conscience. We hope that many others will join us in seeking ways to directly support your team and the beautiful beings you are dedicated to serving, and that we will all grow together in our understanding of what it means to practice holistic nonviolence.”
