The NWRA/IWRC Minimum Standards in Wildlife Rehabilitation was first
published in 1989 as a cooperative effort representing current knowledge,
expertise, and techniques in our field. Each successive edition has acted as a
reflection of what we have learned collectively and have successfully applied
during the last three decades.
Standards in Wildlife Rehabilitation (2021) is an expansion of the earlier editions
and provides new information related to animal welfare, as well as
recommended standards for wildlife rehabilitation.
This live panel presentation discusses major changes to the text, how USFWS
will approach implementing the new standards, and how Standards in Wildlife
Rehabilitation may impact your work with wildlife. Attendees can submit
questions to the panel in advance of and during the session.
