Debbie Campbell spent a good portion of her work career as a clinic manager for a dental office. She was also a senior volunteer at a Wildlife Center for five years. After retiring from dentistry, she worked for a Veterinarian clinic for five years learning a great deal about exotic birds and reptiles. This led to a 3-month volunteer experience at a Wildlife Sanctuary in Costa Rica. For the past five years, she spends a month or two each year as a volunteer working with local wildlife of Costa Rica, with a concentration on the infant and juvenile Howler Monkeys.
Debbie is also very active in publishing a calendar that is sold locally and internationally via website. She shares a home with her life partner of 45 years. Although a PNW native of 60+ years, she recently moved to the Southwest. She traded in the rain, towering pines, raccoons and corvids, for sun, old tall Saguaros, with Screech Owls, Desert Wrens and Gila Woodpeckers living and nesting within their arms and holes.
How Can I Help?
The average cost for one week of basic rehabilitation care varies with the type of animal that comes to Twin Harbors Wildlife Center: $35 for each bird, $55 for each baby mammal, and $79 for each raptor. In order to provide the necessary care to rehabilitate wildlife, we rely heavily on individual donors like you.
