While GROWLS is a volunteer organization, there are numerous expenses which can not be expected to be covered at all times by the organization’s generous on-island members. To wit:
off-island transportation costs incurred in getting wildlife to rehabilitation centres (e.g. ferry fees, vehicle mileage, etc.);
purchase and maintenance of rescue equipment (e.g. safety apparel, catch poles, cages, etc.);
re-stocking of perishable/consumable items (e.g. safety gloves, anti-septic wash, homeopathic solutions);
administrative costs (e.g. web site fees, printer cartridges, advertising); and
training costs (e.g. seminar attendance, seminar hosting, guest speakers).
