Meet Trouper’s Friends

Trouper the Blind Raccoon has many animal and human friends who help him with his mission to save other animals and save our world. Let’s meet them!

Welcome to the home of Trouper & Friends!

Trouper the Blind Raccoon, and his friends Miss Dot, Solo and Lily have much to teach on RESPECTING ALL LIVING THINGS.

Why is Trouper the Blind Raccoon so special? He captured the heart of Miss Dorothy (Dot) Lee, who is a “wildlife rehabilitator” (someone who is allowed to help hurt wild animals) as she fought to save his life after being mistreated as a wild baby raccoon.

In fact, now that Trouper is all grown up, Trouper and Miss Dot together have a mission to Educate Future Leaders — just like you — and empower the next generation to take the lead to create change.

The inspiration behind the WEP is our four-legged friend, Trouper the Blind Raccoon. Trouper and his friends are part of a bigger team who share this vision. This team is called the Wildlife Education Project (WEP) and we want you to be a part of it!

Together, we can all connect with and protect our big beautiful world, including our animal neighbors.  Trouper, Miss Dot and the WEP work every day to teach others how to do this through Trouper’s life lessons.

We want you to help us Respect Wildlife and Protect the Earth. The WEP teaches everyone to be kind to our world’s most treasured natural asset, our world’s wildlife and their natural “habitat” surroundings. (A habitat is where animals live with their animal families. It could be a mountain or a forest, a desert or a beach, or the ocean or a lake.) We want a safe place for every wild animal to live, don’t you?

To Parents:

One simple way you can help with the mission of WEP is to donate. We depend on the generosity of others to fund our mission. Your contribution, no matter how small or large, helps Dot and Trouper continue to share their message of respecting all living things to other children like yours! Visit WEP and click the blue DONATE button in the upper right corner to make your gift!

Our lessons are delivered through easy to understand educational presentations and videos that remind children and adults alike to be kind, respectful and caring. Trouper is now a federally licensed wildlife ambassador for the WEP. Miss Dot, his caretaker, uses his story to educate that the future of our wildlife and our world is in our hands.
