Not to hurt our humble brethren is our first duty to them, but to stop there is not enough. We have a higher mission - to be of service to them whenever they require it.

- Francis of Assisi

Humans have probably always cared for orphaned and wounded wildlife, but wildlife rehabilitation as a discipline arose only in the last century.

What began as a scattering of individuals who drew together to share information and resources has developed into a vibrant international community. Independent rehabilitators, groups, organizations, centres and hospitals can be found the world over.

Wildlife rehabilitation involves the treatment and care of injured wildlife and the nurturing and care of orphaned young. Its objective is to release animals back to their natural habitats without taming or habituating them, so that they may live out their lives and contribute to the continuation of their species.

Wildlife Rehabilitators Database and Survey

We invite all wildlife rehabilitators to participate in Wildlife International. The international community will benefit if we can network, share information and, when necessary, unite in a single voice to speak for and better serve the wildlife in our care.

If you are a rehabilitator or center authorized by the responsible government agency in your country to capture, treat and care for wildlife in need, and if you would like to be listed as an emergency contact for members of the public who have found an animal, please enter your information by clicking the link below. You will be listed on the 'find a rehabilitator' section of the Wildlife Emergency page.
