In some parts of the world, wildlife rehabilitators require specialized training as a condition of permit, while in others no special skills are required.

Regardless of whether training is or is not required by law, rehabilitators work with living, feeling animals that need specific care and handling.

Classes or seminars in basic or advanced rehabilitation skills are available and should be considered by any individual who intends to work with wildlife.

To learn more about organizations and centres that offer formal and informal training, choose a topic from the In Focus menu on the right side of this page.


Wildlife rehabilitation involves an understanding of many areas of science. To broaden your base of knowledge, you may want to consider attending classes at a local school to learn more about your particular areas of interest. Continuing education classes in biology, chemistry, zoology, ornithology, etc. will give you a more complete understanding of the animals in your care, and the challenges they face in their environment.
