Future Positions - Sign up for training

WREN RESPONDER

THIS PROGRAM WILL START POSSIBLY IN SPRING OF 2021. Training starts in fall of 2020. Young wild animals are often mistaken for orphans and are kidnapped by well-meaning individuals. Removing a young wild animal from their natural habitat decreases their chances of surviving and their ability to later thrive in their natural world. Many animals are able to be reunited with their parents successfully. But often individuals do not feel comfortable doing so. That's where you can step in to assist! We will train our existing volunteers how to assess the situation, reunite if able, educate the public about the natural history of our wild neighbors, and provide coexisting tips. 

 

How to become a WREN Responder:

  • Attend in person training workshops (postponed until 2021 due to Covid-19)

  • Sign up for required online lectures for further education (coming soon)

  • Work with a local rehabber, veterinary personnel, or WREN with each case to determine the best course of action

  • Agree to abide by state, federal, and WREN rules and regulations

TRAINING PENDING AVAILABLE SHIFTS. TRAINING ONLY. NO OFFICIAL POSITIONS UNTIL POSSIBLY 2021. We appreciate the need for a wildlife hotline that can reduce the burden on wildlife rehabbers and veterinary personnel while providing immediate assistance to the public. We do not currently have the ability to train volunteers ourselves. But thanks to AHNow, we were connected with a volunteer organization that assists the public with wildlife emergencies and conflict resolutions. They have agreed to let our volunteers to sign up for a virtual shift when and if available to receive training.
