"Our group...booked Kyle and his team to do a presentation to our members this past Saturday at one of our Sailor’s Gathering events. The members were universally thrilled with the presentation and the opportunity to have a meet and greet with the birds and the team. Records were set at the club for turn-out for a Sailor’s Gathering which is a testament to the interest there is in the community, from young and old(er), for the work that you and your team undertake.  It is wonderful that the public can learn more about these birds and have an opportunity to view them at such close range."

-S. Hopewell, Mississauga Sailing Club

"People learn best when they are observing a presenter who is either extremely passionate or knowledgeable about the subject at hand, and Wild Ontario has staff and volunteers who are BOTH! A joy to be around, a pleasure to learn from."

-J. Hudecki, Royal Botanical Gardens

"Another amazing presentation by Wild Ontario! The care and dedication the Wild Ontario staff give to their birds is truly wonderful. The knowledge they have is a great asset to pass on to our campers and visitors. It wouldn't be a summer at French River Provincial Park without a visit from Wild Ontario!"

-F. Bell, French River Provincial Park

"Wild Ontario is always the first organization we book once our guest speaker budget is approved! Our campers love getting to meet the birds up close, and our park education staff love the conservation messages their presentations include. We highly recommend Wild Ontario."

-K. Houlahan, MacGregor Point Provincial Park

"We have had Wild Ontario at our centre for many presentations over the last number of years. We appreciate their ability to modify their presentation to match their audience, from adults at a special interest workshop, to families at a fun owl prowl, to young summer camp kids. They are even a great draw at public festivals where they set up educational booths with their birds. The staff and volunteers at Wild Ontario are knowledgeable and are able to effectively answer questions from participants. They manage well with small intimate groups to up to hundreds of passers-by at festivals. As a coordinator I like that I can rely on Wild Ontario. Once a program is booked and they have the information they need, they arrive on time, are able to set up without assistance and are very self sufficient. We will definitely have Wild Ontario back for future presentations, events and festivals."

-H. Stafford, Kortright Centre for Conservation

“Their unique and captivating presentation style engaged educated and delighted visitors of all ages.  They certainly captured their audience’s attention with their passion for these birds, their habitat and their ecology.”

-F. Fokidis, Ontario Science Centre

“The friendly staff are knowledgeable and enthusiastic and the birds inspire a sense of awe in all of our adult and family presentations.”

-C. Earley, The Arboretum, University of Guelph

"Four years after frosh week, I now have a B.Sc. to my name. No less valuable, I also have a wealth of abilities, achievements, friends, memories, confidence, faith, and purpose that I owe to my time with [Wild Ontario]. I consider it both my joy and my responsibility to give back to the program that helped me so much to grow and change by doing it the same service, and by making sure that this life-changing experience remains available to future volunteers."

-E. Jakubowski, on her time as a volunteer.
