The California Council for Wildlife Rehabilitators (CCWR) represents a progressive group of dedicated wildlife specialists in California. Our members include wildlife rehabilitators, rescue, rehabilitation and service organizations and regulatory agencies.
Our members offer a full range of programs and services throughout the state, including public education, wildlife rescue and rehabilitation, humane exclusion services, volunteer and employment opportunities.
The California Council for Wildlife Rehabilitators is dedicated to advancing wildlife rehabilitation and supporting wildlife in a changing world.
If your facility is affected by an emergency, such as a fire or flood, please contact email@example.com immediately and we can put out a call for assistance to members in your region.
While every wildlife rehabilitator is considered special to CCWR we are looking for someone who is a real inspiration to our community.
- Do you know someone who has inspired you as a Wildlife Rehabilitator?
- Someone who has gone over and beyond the norm?
- A person who has shown extraordinary skills, compassion and knowledge in the field of rehabilitation?
- Perhaps they have overcome obstacles while working with wildlife?
CCWR wants to hear about these Wild Guardians and NEEDS your help to identify them.
