Having marked 10 years as the county's premier wildlife 911 app, Animal Help Now (AHNow) is positioning itself for the decade ahead.
The wildlife emergency and conflict landscapes are rife with opportunity for innovative and collaborative initiatives that can save countless lives, reduce untold amounts of suffering, and restore to humans their promise of truly coexisting with wildlife and moving gently and lovingly through our days.
Such opportunities are well within reach. A sampling:
- Work with wildlife agencies to support their "non-consumptive" constituencies and specifically to embrace (rather than tolerate) wildlife rehabilitation.
- Develop wildlife ambulance services and transportation networks in key areas of the country.
- Foster collaboration among wildlife hotlines to share best practices and critical resources.
- Work with social media platforms such as Nextdoor.com to raise public awareness of AHNow's services and educate the public on how to be better neighbors to wildlife.
Board and committee candidates will have extensive experience with one or more of the following: technology, fundraising, wildlife rehabilitation, humane wildlife management, social media, education, program evaluation, and the like.

Animal Help Now educates the public on how to mitigate threats to wildlife and all animals.
