Several members of the Noble County-based group called Philanthropists Utilizing Lifelong Service and Education (P.U.L.S.E.) invited students visiting from New York to join them for a volunteer project and guided tour of Black Pine Animal Park this week. Nearly 40 students and their adult advisors visited the non-profit exotic animal sanctuary located in Albion with gloves in hand, ready to work. Four teams completed various projects, including picking up trash from the roadway and entrance to the park, spring clean-up raking around habitats, making fence repairs, and adding new substrate to tiger habitats. Black Pine relies greatly on volunteers to help carry out their mission to provide permanent refuge to exotic animals displaced, abandoned or confiscated from private homes, or retired from performance. The park is continuing to rebuild permanent habitats following an unexpected but necessary relocation to a new site in 2006. The Noble County Community Foundation was the sponsoring organization who helped arrange the students' visit to Albion.
