Locals and visitors commonly encounter injured wildlife, but are not sure what to do or whom to call. We need to improve public knowledge in this area and provide resources and training for volunteers.
Injured birds, small mammals, raccoons, and many others rely upon volunteers to help them get to the designated wildlife rehabilitation centres (mostly located in the lower Mainland). We are creating a protocol and volunteer network to strengthen and support the community’s response to injured wildlife.
The committee aims to work closely with existing wildlife and animal welfare advocacy groups in the local community (AWARE, Whistler Wildlife Protection Group, WAG and BearSmart, Whistler Conservation Officers, etc.)
We need volunteers!
