An Introduction to Central Virginia Wildlife Rehabilitation


This course will consider why wildlife and wilderness are worth preserving, the role of animal rehabilitation, and the state of Central Virginia's wildlife today. The course begins with a discussion of the importance of biodiversity and the nuanced interconnectedness of our natural world. The second class narrows this examination to the state of native Virginia wildlife and habitat, using materials and content developed by the Virginia Museum of Natural History. The final class presents a case for wildlife rehabilitation as one solution with a positive impact on our local environment. Staff from Rockfish Wildlife Sanctuary will discuss their efforts to rescue, rehabilitate and release local wildlife. Expect live education animals to attend!
