Wildlife Rehabilitation Volunteer

Learn how to care for wildlife in our Rehabilitation Clinic

Become an integral part of the life-saving work we do in Sharon Audubon Center’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic. Work alongside clinic staff and other volunteers to provide essential care and treatment to nearly 1,000 sick, injured, and orphans admitted into rehabilitation every year. Our volunteers provide hands-on support for and work with a variety of native Connecticut wildlife, focusing on birds from hummingbirds to eagles, ducklings to owls, and songbirds to herons! No previous experience required. We ask that prospective volunteers agree to:

  • Be at least 15 years of age.
  • Provide your own transportation to the Sharon Audubon Center.
  • Arrive prepared to work your shift during all seasons. 
  • Volunteer one shift/week for a minimum of six months, unless otherwise agreed upon with the Wildlife Rehabilitator. 

If you are interested in this volunteer opportunity or would like to learn more, please contact us at the Sharon Audubon Center.
