Wildlife Rescue: Handling & Transport

SUNDAY, MARCH 19, 2023, 12:30PM – 3:00PM

WHERE: Saratoga Springs Public Library, 49 Henry Street, Saratoga Springs, NY

Getting an injured or orphaned animal from where they were found into the care of a wildlife rehabilitator is one of North Country Wild Care’s biggest challenges, and volunteer wildlife transporters often save the day. In this class, you’ll learn how to safely contain and transport wildlife, including the basic equipment you will need, strategies for handling different kinds of animals, what to do once the animal is in your car, and the ever-important topic of paperwork. This class is ideal for both beginning rehabilitators and those who are not wildlife rehabbers but would be involved and help wildlife.

In-person at the Saratoga Springs Public Library – Dutcher Community Room

INSTRUCTOR:
Cara is a Veterinary Technician and NYS Licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator who has been working with wildlife for over 30 years. This past year Cara was honored with the NYSWRC’s “Vet Tech of the Year” award for tireless service to wildlife.
Originally from California, Cara volunteered for a local animal shelter that did wildlife rehabilitation. Once she got into the program and started caring for injured and orphaned wildlife, she was hooked. After completing school and a veterinary technician program, she went on to help develop a Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in California. Cara moved to New York in 2000, immediately hooked up with local rehabilitators, and got her NYS rehab license. Cara primarily rehabs mammals and birds from tiny hummingbird nestlings to the beloved bald eagle, from ‘pinky’ opossum neonates to countless orphaned squirrels, foxes, skunks, ermines, woodchucks, black bears and bobcats, with the occasional reptile and amphibian! Cara currently works at Schroon River Animal Hospital and is a longtime founding member of North Country Wild Care.
