within and surrounding RoswellRoswell, GA 30076


Wildlife Resources and Education Network is recruiting volunteer transporters in Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee to acquire and transport injured and orphaned wildlife to permitted rehabilitators. WREN will abide by state and federal wildlife regulations and uphold and promote the mission of the permitted rehabbers as well as the state and federal regulatory agencies. No experience needed. You must have a reliable vehicle, driver's license, and be 18 years or older. You must sign a liability form, agree to review and become familiar with state and federal wildlife regulations, and promote WREN's mission. You may be subject to a background check.

We are very flexible on commitment whether it is three hours every other month or one day per week. We are looking for enthusiastic people that share a mutual respect for wildlife, who desire to educate the public on when not to intervene with wildlife and how to resolve issues humanely, and to promptly get injured and orphaned wild animals to the designated permitted rehabber to give the animal the best prognosis and most humane outcome.

Please use this link http://eepurl.com/bYNu3L to complete our volunteer form, and we will be in touch afterwards with further instructions. Feel free to contact us at info@wrencertified.org for any questions.

Once you complete the form, you will be added to our transporter list and called upon in case of an emergency in your area. The form tells us know how far you are willing to drive, what days, time of days, etc. Your commitment is completely up to you. Most of our volunteers only handle small mammals (typically orphaned or injured young mammals), birds, and turtles. Most are usually contained by the finder before picked up by the transporter depending on the individual situation.

We make all the arrangements and coordinate with permitted rehabbers and veterinary staffs throughout Georgia. We will get approval from a rehabber or veterinary clinic before sending an injured or orphaned wild animal to their facility. Once we do, we contact potential transporters and go from there.

We hope to offer training for handling and restraint in Georgia as we become more established. We do abide by the regulations of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service and Georgia Department of Natural Resources. We are not able to handle venomous snakes, black bears, and adult deer at this time. We will also send you updates on events or issues that may be relevant to you to include you as much as we can.

Our main goals of WREN are building transport networks, creating awareness of wildlife rehabilitation and its need for community support, and supporting those rehabbers ourselves with donations, free educational resources, supplies, and whatever they need. All this is focused on rehab efforts in Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee for right now. We are also interested in teaching local communities the many benefits of their native wildlife and how to coexist harmoniously.
