An entertaining and inspiring early reader celebrating the dynamic woman behind Hope for Wildlife, featuring full colour illustrations.

A charitable organization based in Seaforth, Nova Scotia, Hope for Wildlife has been rescuing, rehabilitating, and releasing wildlife since 1997, and to date has helped over 80,000 injured and orphaned wild animals representing more than 250 species. The popular reality television show Hope for Wildlife TV, currently filming its eleventh season, has given the wildlife rescue and its heroic founder an international platform.

The woman who started it all, Hope Swinimer, continues to run the organization, with the help of many volunteers, interns, wildlife rescuers, veterinarians, and donors. While Hope has never been one for the personal spotlight, her achievements are finally celebrated in this inspiring book for young readers.

With charming full-colour illustrations from Cape Breton artist Leah Boudreau, this early reader follows Hope’s journey as she builds Hope for Wildlife from the ground up, overcoming many obstacles—and saving many animals—along the way, From Zorro the skunk to Bobbi the robin to Gretel the pine marten, and so many more!

An entertaining and educational story that celebrates wildlife rehabilitation, female entrepreneurship, and community-building, She is Hope for Wildlife is the perfect read for the young animal lovers in your life.

Wanda Baxter lives on an old farmstead in Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia, with her long-time partner, Randy, and two happy cats. When she bought an old farmhouse in 2005 her father asked, "Why in the world would you buy an old house?"; sometimes she wonders. Built in 1783, the old house is an endless project, but it is also magical. Wanda has a Masters degrees in English (with Creative Writing) and Environmental Design, and works as an environmental consultant. She is a long-time member of the band Cut, Split and Delivered and she feels honoured to have had the chance to work with Kat Frick Miller on this book.
