Basic Course in Wildlife Rehabilitation - September 10 and 11

This introductory course, facilitated by the Department of Parks and Wildlife, is designed for anyone in the community interested in the rehabilitation of sick, injured or abandoned native wildlife.

Information is presented by some of Western Australia's most experienced wildlife rehabilitators. They will share their expertise in their specialist fields - marsupials (kangaroos and possums), reptiles and birds (including raptors).  The course also caters for those interested in volunteering at an established wildlife rehabilitation centre and is a prerequisite for those volunteers who would like to become a Department of Parks and Wildlife registered wildlife rehabilitator.
