The Wildlife Center cannot fulfill its mission without the help of many dedicated volunteers. Volunteers play a vital role in assisting the patients as well as sharing the Center’s message.
Volunteers can serve in many different ways, depending on their interests, availability, and the needs of the Center. Opportunities include:
- Outreach [leading tours and working with some of the Center’s non-releasable education ambassadors],
- Veterinary department [including various opportunities in the hospital, kitchen, carpentry, or administration], and
- Transport/rescue [safely delivering patients to/from the Center].
Volunteers may also choose to serve in more than one area!
September 2020 update: We're currently not accepting new applications in the outreach and veterinary department areas. But we'll always happily accept transporter volunteers. Thank you!
