    Anyone who sees the videos of birds and other animals affected by this disaster can easily understand the importance of this clean-up effort.  The effects of this disaster could linger for years, which is why many have already volunteered their time to aid in the clean-up and recovery effort.

     Dr. Cerf added his name to a database of interested and experienced volunteers established by the American Association of Zoo Veterinarians (AAZV).  This organization is specifically seeking biologists, zoologists, veterinarians, veterinary technicians and others with wildlife interest and expertise to register with their database and contribute their efforts to this very important cause.

     The AAZV started the database in May and has witnessed a tremendous response to this call to action.  While Dr. Cerf has made significant advancements in veterinary care right here in Bergen County, he is also aware of how extremely important it is to lend one’s talents towards helping those in need beyond our own backyards.

     Dr. Cerf remains optimistic at the chance of recovery for this ecologically important region.  Should he be called upon to help, we will provide personal updates of his experiences.
