Who knew we were so lucky? Part Four

Ecuador to Colombia and Beyond

I was sad to leave so many new friends, both human and animal, when I had to leave the wildlife sanctuary in Ecuador. I met some amazing locals and the sanctuary was an overall amazing experience. The other volunteers at the sanctuary had a similar outlook on life; they also wanted to improve the welfare of animals. As I independently hiked through the rainforest from the sanctuary to the nearby town, I felt a sense of relief. Yes, I couldn’t help every animal, but I was gaining perspective of international animal welfare. The United States was fortunate enough to have an abundance of animal shelters, along with a society that cares for those that cannot speak for themselves.
