Lindsay Wildlife Experience Volunteer Fair is on March 26
Are you passionate about helping wildlife and educating people about their wild neighbors? Lindsay Wildlife Experience is holding a volunteer fair from 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 26 with information about wildlife rehabilitation and educational outreach opportunities.
Lindsay Wildlife staff and volunteers will be on hand to speak about home care of wildlife hospital patients. Also known as satellite care, this rewarding volunteer opportunity allows people to care for sick, injured and orphaned wildlife in their homes after the animals receive treatment in Lindsay’s wildlife rehabilitation hospital. Information about other volunteer opportunities for youth and adults will also be available.
Home care is a critical part of the rehabilitation process and has helped thousands of wildlife patients successfully return to the wild where they belong. Home care volunteers undergo extensive training, including how to keep wild animals from becoming habituated to humans while in care. With the arrival of baby animal season, there is an urgent need for volunteers to care for all of the various species of California native wildlife that are received in Lindsay’s wildlife rehabilitation hospital.
The outdoor event will be held in front of Lindsay Wildlife Experience’s exhibit hall and includes visits with some animal ambassadors.
