The Wildlife Resources and Education Network is an initiative to raise the standard of care and connect the world of wildlife medicine and rehabilitation.
Our goal is to enable humans to interact with injured wildlife in a responsible and rewarding manner. With this goal in mind, we connect the entire process from the time an injured animal is found until it is ready to be released back into the wild if needed. Wildlife rehabilitators are given the means to provide the best care possible, and concerned citizens are given a reliable point of contact for their injured wildlife concerns. We will accomplish this by providing an all-encompassing ambulatory service, continuing education and training, and monetary and tangible resources among many other benefits. All of this will be at no cost to those that are involved in the process.
We believe that wildlife rehabilitation is an altruistic act making up for the negative impact we as humans have on wildlife. Wildlife rehabbers typically do this out of pocket and don't always have the time to build strong community ties. Without the necessary monetary resources and community backing, it is a constant struggle to provide optimal care to injured wildlife. WREN was created to change this, giving rehabilitators the means to provide the utmost care for injured wildlife. WREN makes this happen by creating a rewarding experience for anyone involved in finding injured wildlife, triaging, transporting, or rehabilitating wildlife. WREN unites the process from start to finish allowing all to enjoy a positive experience while attempting to offset our negative impact on native wildlife.
