Volunteers at the Wildlife Center of Texas have completed the 2012 winter in-service classes schedule for this year. The classes included avian handling/care; the identification/rehabilitation of gulf coast birds of prey; and mammal housing, formulas and care.
Ninety-eight WCT volunteers took advantage of one or more of these classes. The classes consisted of power point presentations and demonstrations to help aid volunteers in their working with injured, ill and orphaned native wildlife. One lesson stressed to the volunteers was how important it is to get single animals with others of its kind so they do not imprint on humans.
Staff was very encouraged that so many dedicated volunteers continue to educate themselves so that compromised animals are given the best opportunities. Volunteers were encouraged to use the Wildlife Center’s reference library to aid with identification, life histories, and other interesting facts.
