Texas native orphaned bobcat kitten in rehab!

  • Do you love animals?
  • Do you want to volunteer from home?
  • Do you enjoy watching wildlife in your backyard and learning about our native Texas wildlife?
  • Would you enjoy being a part of a community of other like-minded volunteers?
  • The DFW Wildlife Coalition provides volunteers with training on urban wildlife, natural history and urban ecology of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex area.
  • In the past three years we have helped over 10,000 callers with their questions about wildlife. Calls are forwarded to volunteers who answer calls from the comfort of their own home. A typical shift is 2-hours long.
  • Volunteers educate the public on the natural history of our urban wildlife and provide solutions for human:wildlife conflicts.
  • Our volunteers save lives every day when they help a caller find a permitted wildlife rehabilitator for an injured squirrel, help the caller reunite a fallen baby bird back into it's nest, or provide humane solutions for wildlife conflicts instead of trapping and removal.
  • If you love animals and enjoy helping people learn how to have more positive experiences with nature, then contact us about our next orientatin training class.

Mission Statement

The mission of the DFW Wildlife Coalition is to reduce the incidence of orphaned and euthanized native wildlife in the DFW metroplex through public outreach and education.

Description

We accomplish our mission by combining a virtual solution driven hotline - operated 365 days a year from 7am-10pm - and a website complete with Chat and resources to address FAQs about local wildlife. Together they empower the public by providing humane solutions for co-existence between humans and wildlife in our urban environment. Volunteers are "Virtual First Responders" guiding the public to appropriate responses on rescue or to reunite the baby with its' wild parent and where to find the best care for the injured and orphaned.
We have been answering wildlife concerns in our community since 2003 and currently answer 12,000 calls per year. We currently operate with more than 50 volunteers who devotedly dedicate their time each week. We are passionate about helping the public find the solutions they need for co-existing with wildlife in their own backyard and communities.
