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!

  • Wildlife Rehabilitation Volunteers are needed throughout the year, with a priority during our busy summer season.
  • From late spring to early fall, our Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic is filled with dozens of hungry baby birds needing to be fed every 15 minutes for 12-14 hours a day!
  • Volunteers may be year-round or seasonal.
  • No previous knowledge or experience in animal care necessary.

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