NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- How often does one get to meet an albino wallaby? The students in the Isaac E. Young Middle School Wildlife Rehabilitators in Training Club have.

Two animal experts stopped by in recent months to introduce the 30-plus club members to the rare, all-white marsupial and a host of other creatures, including pigeons, a hedgehog, several species of monkeys, a chinchilla and a large - and loud - bird from Australia called a kookaburra.

The far-flung friends visited the club with human companions from Animal Nation in Rye and Noah's Park Retreat in Goshen, N.Y.
