Learn how to care for birds and other animals in the rehabilitation clinic

Each spring and summer, our Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic becomes filled with dozens of hungry, delicate baby birds. Many times, these birds need to be fed every 15 minutes for 12 to 14 hours a day. Volunteers are desperately needed to care for birds while the center staff teach programs or are away from the building. Several workshops are held in the spring for interested volunteers and one of these workshops must be attended before beginning to feed. Anyone under 14 years of age must be accompanied by an adult while caring for the birds. No previous knowledge or experience handling birds is necessary. Interested potential Connecticut wildlife rehabilitators may receive volunteer hours through the Sharon Audubon Center.
