About

Wildlife ICU Assistants

In the Soarin' Hawk ICU we keep critically ill birds and those that just need to be on medication. We currently have 10 birds in ICU and it takes about 2 hours morning and evening to care for the birds. We want to add at least one more person per shift to help. In the summer we could have twice that many birds!

Description of jobs:
There are three positions in ICU:

  1. cleaning cages as we medicate the birds and move them to a clean cage,
  2. those who can hold the birds while they get medicine,
  3. those who medicate the birds

Time requirement: a commitment to one shift a week (more if you want!) that is 2-3 hours. The shifts are approximately 6-8 am and 6-8 pm M-F and slightly later on weekends

Experience requirements:
All - dependability, commitment to every week, works well with other volunteers, attention to detailg
Cleaning cages - none
Holding birds: some experience holding healthy birds (such as helping creance fly) before holding sick birds
Medicating birds: some medical background preferred but not required (if this is something you want to do, start by being the person to hold the birds for medicating and we will teach you the rest)

Training will be provided by our Veterinary staff.
