Many volunteer stories feature groups of volunteers working together for a common goal. Some stories focus on just one volunteer who leads the way, inspiring others with his or her actions. This article out of Virginia profiles one such volunteer. Diana O’Connor’s story is filled with her many years of wildlife care and rehabilitation. At the age of 70, and with a physical condition that limits what she can do, she is still rehabbing and saving wildlife as much as she possibly can. She even has a business card that describes her as simply “a volunteer for wildlife,” which is a pretty great job title to have.

O’Connor does much of her work with Wild Bunch Wildlife Rehabilitation.
