Gloves for Volunteers
Most of our volunteers transport already contained animals. State wildlife regulations determine what our volunteers can and cannot handle or transport. But we do have a team of talented, enthusiastic volunteers that will capture injured wildlife such as birds of prey (most common capture request). And these volunteers deserve protective gloves!
To the left is a picture of a contained, injured Barred owl Paige transported from Waycross, Georgia to the Georgia Sea Turtle Center. While the owl was contained, Paige had to transfer the owl to a suitable and safe transport container.
We decided to use ArmOR Handling Gloves as they are high quality, form fitting, and are not made of animal byproducts. They are $150 a pair. We have raised over $455 allowing us to purchase three sets so far for three Georgia volunteers. Our next goal is to raise $300 especially today on #GivingTuesdayNow to provide our volunteers, Paige and Kate, located in southeast Georgia with gloves.
