Where The Wild Things Are: On The Road With Acres’ Wildlife Rescue Team (Part 1)


WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE: On The Road With Our Rescue Team

Thank you Rice Media for the beautiful photos, candid sharing and the feature!

“To my right, Ka Lai, ACRES’ co-CEO, is driving with the grim expression of a man in need of caffeine. To my left, Laurie Day, his partner for today’s shift, is triaging calls to their hotline, toggling between phones (one for ACRES’ case logs, one for the hotline) like she’s competing in the multi-tasking #Olympics. From what I can tell, she’s talking to a caller about two boar piglets trapped in a drain, sending another Voice Notes about an injured bird, and identifying animals from a never-ending stream of incoming photos, all at the same time. The sheer volume of messages is giving me secondhand anxiety.”
