Ricky Pires Director,
“Wings of Hope” Program
The Wings of Hope Program fulfills their mission every day, and it is the inspiration for everything they do! Ricky Pires, along with her dedicated staff and advisors, build hope for wildlife and countless natural areas not only in southwest Florida, but all over the country. Constantly this program is advocating, spreading awareness and educating young and adult minds alike, not only in their classroom, but at various festivals and events when the opportunity presents itself. The program hopes to educate as many individuals as possible, reconnecting people with native wildlife and the outdoors, and help save endangered animals such as the Florida Panther.
