Wildlife Rehabilitator - Animal Related Careers



Today I discuss the life of a wildlife rehabilitator. A wildlife rehabilitator operates under the supervision of a licensed veterinarian and is responsible for the successful rehabilitation and release of injured, sick and orphaned wild animals. They are very hands on with wildlife such as squirrels, owls, and eagles. It is recommended that a course of study in ecology, wildlife biology, or zoology be taken prior to volunteering or pursuing an internship. Legal permits and licenses are required to hold this position.
