Volunteering at WRC


Volunteering with wildlife undergoing medical and rehabilitative care is incredibly rewarding and can also be heartbreaking. You'll get to know the patients, provide for their daily needs, keep their living quarters, bedding and food dishes clean. You'll learn more than you thought possible about wildlife.


It's one of the most amazing experiences you'll have with animals.


Because these are wild animals young children cannot come with you to the center or volunteer. If you'd like your child to gain experience with wildlife we suggest contacting a local nature center who are equipped and specialize in teaching children about wildlife.

Interning with Us

Maybe you've already volunteered with us or another wildlife center. Or maybe you're a pre-vet student, or enrolled in fisheries and wildlife courses. Or maybe you'd just like to learn more about the rehabilitation process (you don't need to be in school to intern!).


If you nodded your head at any of these, and are at least 18 years of age, our seasonal internships are for you! Learn more here.
