As a volunteer Dani discovered an incredible quantity about hedgehogs – how they dwell, their medical wants, even the right way to determine diseases. However what has been most stunning to him was not how a lot new info he discovered about animals, however what he has discovered about people. Daniel shared,
“I discovered how a lot hassle people could cause for animals… our carelessness and neglect is the primary motive why these animals (together with loads others) get in hassle, get injured, killed, maimed or sick. This is the reason I’m an everyday volunteer and why I plan to proceed sooner or later”.
A variety of these issues could possibly be prevented, Dani mirrored, if people could possibly be a bit extra thoughtful about issues e.g. wanting and shaking a bundle of autumn lower wooden within the spring earlier than setting it on hearth.
