Announcement: Trainng Course for Wildlife Rehabilitation: March 8-9
- The Wildlife Rehabilitation Society of Saskatchewan (WRSOS) is hosting a
/Basic Wildlife Rehabilitation Course/ on March 8-9, 2008 at the Western
College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon. The trainers and
curriculum come from the International Wildlife Rehabilitation Council
(IWRC) who offer training around the world. The course has a minimum of
32 spots and a maximum of 42. The course fee is US$150.
WRSOS is focusing on expanding our wildlife rehabilitation base around
the province in the next few years. This course is a starting point for
us. We hope to build a broad base of people interested in supporting
Saskatchewan wildlife so that resources become available locally to
minimize the trauma of transport to the animals.
Anyone interested in attending the Basic Wildlife Rehabilitation Course
may call Jan Shadick at 306-652-5975, if you have any questions or send
an email to jshadick@... . Interested individuals can also get
more information or register for the course online at the IWRC website
at www.iwrc-online.org/training/calendar.cfm by Feb. 15th.
WRSOS would also like Saskbirds to know that we have a Wildlife Hotline
number of 242-7177 for anyone finding injured or orphaned wildlife.
