Here at PWR we have two special reasons to celebrate Groundhog's Day: Hansel and Gretel, our resident groundhogs. In honor of the groundhog, check out our new coloring pages, our groundhog photo galleryof some of the groundhogs we have had the privilege of working with, and our video below of Hansel and Gretel!
This video is our way of thanking the Likewise Jazz Trio for donating their time to perform for us at a fundraiser. We also wanted to tell Hansel and Gretel's story. They have touched the lives of many people through their work as our ambassadors. Hansel and Gretel came to us in 2009 when only a few days old. Their mother was accidentally killed by a construction worker. A caring neighbor found them. When they came to PWR as babies, Hansel and Gretel had some minor health issues that prevented them from being good candidates for release. We applied for a permit to give them status as educational animals. They travel to schools and workplaces to encourage appreciation of wildlife. Don't forget to check out the groundhog photo gallery for more pictures of Hansel and Gretel.
