Call of the Wild Conference

November 19-21, 2021

The Wildlife Center of Virginia invites you to the 26th annual Call of the Wild conference on wildlife rehabilitation, co-sponsored by the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources. Wildlife rehabilitators, veterinary professionals, wildlife biologists, environmental educators, and wildlife enthusiasts from Virginia and beyond will share ideas and knowledge that can benefit wildlife, the environment, and the continually evolving field of wildlife rehabilitation. 

The 2021 Call of the Wild conference will be held online through the Whova Event app. No need to make travel plans or book a hotel room.  You may take full advantage of the 2021 conference without leaving your home! 

This is an excellent learning opportunity for rehabilitators of all skill levels — and a chance for you to relax and rejuvenate, and be inspired to continue the great work you do!

Stay tuned for more information this summer! 


Are you interested in speaking at the online Call of the Wild 2021?  Use this form to submit your abstract and bio; we'll be receiving abstracts through July 1! We're looking for a mix of both recorded presentations and interactive live discussions.
