Although the leadership of CCWR strives to be a liaison between California wildlife rehabilitators and our governing agencies, including the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW), we have no authority regarding regulations or enforcement. We function in an advisory capacity, giving assistance and input where we can.
