The Wildlife Care Academy will be offering an online class on Wednesday, January 29. 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 203: Wildlife Rehabilitation Fundamentals
Interested in rehabilitating wildlife? Discussion will include an examination of the Virginia permitting process, with a focus on helping the new rehabilitator decide which species he/she would like to and can rehabilitate. The class will also include the who, what, when, where, and why of setting up a home rehabilitation room/facility, and will include information on stocking the appropriate equipment and supplies. The importance of natural history will be emphasized, and attendees will learn how to develop an animal nutrition plan. Finally, the class will examine the rehabilitation processes of an infant mammal and nestling songbird, from birth to release. Our case-study approach makes learning about wildlife rehabilitation fun and practical for the beginner!
