Giving back is easy for our family. We grew up ensconced in a culture of international philanthropy that still includes donating on many levels to a multitude of causes. We regularly get the children involved in the where, when and how to give back with animals always being their first philanthropic choice. Willowbank Wildlife Reserve allows us to double dip with fun and philanthropy. Seeing animals in their natural environments is a far cry from the animal zoos and parks I visited in America. The animals are happy and naturally protected with lots of room to thrive. It's an educational experience for the entire family that includes an easy trek around the reserve with your chance to see the world's oldest living dinosaur and the infamous Kea. These photos below are a combined effort from our photography students.
