NSRI rescue stations serve not only as storage areas for assets, boats and equipment and control stations for operations, they are also family spaces where we encourage the involvement of spouses and children, outside of operations, to ensure that volunteer time is sustained and that families are not denied time with their loved ones. We believe this is an important element of volunteer sustainability.We don't shy away from humble beginnings but, over time, our supporters and the families of those we rescue often step forward wishing to fund a few comforts at their local rescue base.At Station 23 Wilderness, one of our rescue volunteers is a professional photographer and she very kindly spent time showcasing their newly refurbished base.
