Episode Info

Episode Info: Long Island, New York resident Olivia Bouler, wise beyond her eleven years, decided to take action. She began drawing birds and selling them to help in the efforts to clean up the devastating spill and begin the long process of rehabilitating the wildlife in the area. She posted her efforts on Facebook, and what followed next was something neither she nor her family could have ever anticipated. To date, Olivia’s efforts have raised some $200,000 and garnered numerous animal and environmental awards. Her speech at the ASPCA Humane Awards luncheon in October 2010-- where she shared the stage with the likes of Sam Simon, co-creator of "The Simpsons", brought the house down. Pets In the City spoke with the young and multi-talented Islip resident earlier this year when she had just gotten word that her book, "Olivia’s Birds" would be published by Sterling Publishing.
