Wildlife Rehabilitators Clinic

The Clinic is staffed by a full time volunteer Executive Director, a paid Clinical Director and a part time staff person and has a membership of 13 licensed volunteer rehabilitators. The clinic treated about 1,700 wild birds and mammals in 2006.

The trend is for an increasing number of injuries as more rural land is developed. WRARI also provides ongoing training for licensed wildlife rehabilitators, volunteers and individuals who answer the Wildlife Hotline and field thousands of calls annually.
