Careers in Wildlife Rehabilitation
The National Wildlife Rehabilitators Association does not employ wildlife rehabilitators. The organization has two full-time office staff employees. However, many National Wildlife Rehabilitators Association members offer paid positions and/or internships. Part-time and seasonal jobs, internships, and volunteer positions are all excellent ways to gain experience in wildlife rehabilitation. More information about becoming a wildlife rehabilitator is available on this website. National Wildlife Rehabilitator Association members that offer jobs, internships, and other positions often advertise to other members in the following ways:
- Announcements at the annual National Wildlife Rehabilitators Association Symposium;
- Opportunities listed here on the NWRA website.
In addition, members can contact other members by using the NWRA Membership Directory.
