WREN has taken over operations of the Georgia Wildlife Rescue Association! We are now recruiting volunteer transporters in GA, TN, and AL. If you are interested in transporting for WREN, please fill out a transport volunteer form.
The Wildlife Resources and Education Network (WREN) is an initiative to raise the standard of care and connect the world of wildlife medicine and rehabilitation, all at ZERO COST to those that treat and report injured wildlife. Our vision is to promote stewardship, sustainability, and unity among wildlife rehabilitators. Our mission is to raise the standard of care for wildlife medicine and rehabilitation.
WREN is about:
Helping Injured Wildlife
- WREN’s ambulatory service will provide ONE point of contact and transportation service for all injured wildlife concerns across the mainland United States within the next five years.
- WREN will connect an injured wild animal with its best possible option for care and return it back to the wild (if needed) once it has undergone treatment.
- Educating the public about our native wildlife and the proper way to interact with injured wildlife is extremely important to WREN. WREN will engage with the public explaining when an animal is in need of human intervention.
Helping Rehabilitators treat injured wildlife ethically and effectively
- WREN provides guidance by using the expertise of those in wildlife medicine and rehabilitation. A large and diverse advisory panel helps WREN consult for every issue relevant in wildlife rehabilitation. Connecting those that treat with top experts allows WREN to unite the process and raise the standard of care in wildlife medicine and rehabilitation.
- WREN certifies with a purpose. Our certification program’s goal is not to become an exclusive club but to give rehabilitators the means to prosper. With this objective in mind, WREN gives the necessary tools for rehabilitators to treat animals ethically, use proper business practices, and interact with the community in a positive manner.
- WREN’s education initiative will provide
- species-specific manuals
- conferences and training seminars
- database with a dual purpose to support hospitals and rehabilitators and collaboration of wildlife exploration, investigation, and research
- WREN’s surplus program floods our members with resources. Through grants, WREN helps build structures and repair facilities. Through internships, WREN gives human support to rehabilitators that need it most. WREN has the goal of spreading more than 50% of its financial resources directly back to those that struggle to treat our native wildlife.
