Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Wildlife Education and Rehabilitation Center provides the community with rehabilitation services for orphaned injured and sick native wildlife; through our educational programs, W.E.R.C. encourages a peaceful coexistence between civilization and our native wildlife.
W.E.R.C. operates as a temporary refuge as the organization's goal is not to tame, but to release animals back into their native habitat healthy, wild, and free.
Wildlife rehabilitation is an evolving science. Due to diverse requirements in care, feeding, handling and physical therapy, it is a process requiring skill, training, and continuing education.
W.E.R.C., with a dedicated team of staff and volunteers, has been recognized as meeting these requirements.
As such, it is the only facility in the South Santa Clara County licensed by California Department of Fish and Game and by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to care for native wildlife.
