How you can work with Friends of Wildlife
Wildlife Rehabilitator Training
Friends of Wildlife holds a basic wildlife rehabilitation training workshop
once a year in the early spring. PLEASE GO TO OUR EVENT CALENDAR FOR DETAILS AND SIGN UP. All new volunteers must complete the basic training workshop and species care sessions before becoming eligible to rehabilitate wildlife as Friends of Wildlife rehabilitators. Current volunteer rehabilitators must fulfill continuing education requirements in order to maintain their active status.
Friends of Wildlife needs non-rehabilitator volunteers too! We
might be able to use your help in building cages or taking phone
calls or distributing the newsletter or improving this Web site!
If you are willing to share your time and talents, then please email us at friendsofwildlifeMI@gmail.com.
Open your Land to Wildlife
Friends of Wildlife rehabilitators work hard to prepare the animals
in their care for release back into the wild. We may only release
animals on private property and with the permission of the landowner.
Wild spaces are growing smaller. Much of the undeveloped private
land where we formerly were allowed to release animals has been
sold for development or to new owners who are unsympathetic to our
cause. If you own land in Michigan (in Washtenaw County or the surrounding
counties) and are willing to allow us to release rehabilitated wildlife
on it, please let us know by emailing us at friendsofwildlifeMI@gmail.com.
Donations are Welcome!
Friends of Wildlife can always use money donations for purchasing
