The Wildlife Care Academy will be offering an online class on Monday, January 13. Online classes at the Wildlife Care Academy are taught via Blackboard Collaborate, which bring the classroom experience right to the attendee, without having to travel! The goal of the online classes is to provide live instruction programs that allow interaction between teacher and student like a traditional classroom but via the easily accessible format of a virtual classroom.
REHAB 101: Introduction to Wildlife Rehabilitation
Interested in helping wildlife, but not sure where to start? Join us for an introduction to ways in which you can help wild animals. Learn how to determine if a baby animal is really an orphan, what to do if an animal is injured, and where to get the right wildlife advice. Discover ways to get involved, including how to become a permitted wildlife rehabilitator in Virginia. Discussion will also include wildlife laws, the rehabilitator’s code of ethics, and considerations on becoming a wildlife rehabilitator. While the specific laws and wildlife examples will be from Virginia, the information is applicable to anyone interested in wildlife!
