I volunteer at the Wildlife Center of Virginia. I see first hand the amazing work the vets, vet techs and the rehabbers do day in and day out to care for wounded and abandoned wildlife. Many undergrad and grad students from all over the world spend time at WCV to learn "cutting edge" technology on the treatment of the many mammals, birds and reptiles admitted daily to the center. The center also provides a "critter cam". Allowing young children to observe and study animals that may be on their SOL curriculum. This gives the children a visual interaction studying wildlife and the environment. WCV provides on and off site educational programs using their non-releasable animals. The Wildlife Center of Virginia is a non-profit organization that depends primarily upon private donations for its programs and services.

I have been a Wildlife Center of Virginia donor for many many years, but only realized relatively recently that I could have been volunteering as well! Since I started volunteering, I have learned by personal experience what a fabulous job of teaching the Center does. I knew they cared for injured wildlife of all sorts, but in addition to that they are a teaching hospital with veterinary students from all over the world spending varying amounts of time getting hands on experience with an extraordinary variety of animals, and then going out and sharing their knowledge with others wherever they go. With the relatively recent addition of "Critter Cams" that have created a growing "Critter Nation" with members from as far away as Australia, it is clear that the education part of their mission is exploding!

I have been working with the Wildlife Center of Virginia since its inception by way of: transporting captured or orphaned wild animals and birds to them for vet care; have participated in excellent training programs for beginning and advanced wildlife rehabilitators- and have sent many new rehabbers to them for help, guidance, and training; have participated in on line discussions and training; have watched their Wildlife Veterinarians as they have cared for the Wild Creatures of Virginia and been trained to go out to other states and countries to care for wild animals and birds. In all things, this is a center for the care of the wild that shines bright on manty and every level including working and educating the public on the need to cre boout our national treasures of all kinds of wildlife. It has maintained "Critter Cams" which have excited people all across the nation to watch, learn, and respect our wildlife- especially in the care of three orphaned American Bald Eagles from the Norfolk Botanical Gardens. Personally, I have been treated with dignity and respect, as have the wild things under their excellent care. The co-founder and Ed Clark has realized and nurtured The Wildlife Center of Virginia into one of the top Centers and Hospitals for the care of injured and orphaned wild animals and birds..
