Marianna_with_Sequoia_spotted_owlThis volunteer opportunity is for current hospital volunteers only (ages 15 and older) who have completed the required hospital training series (a full 10 hours) of hands-on training for the wildlife hospital.

WildCare is home to 18 educational wildlife. These animals can no longer survive in the wild and now serve as Ambassadors for their species, educating thousands of Bay Area children and adults each year. They require daily feeding, care, enrichment and training to provide them the best life possible.

Ambassador Volunteers have the opportunity to learn handling techniques, including manning raptors and positive reinforcement training techniques. They also are able to provide valuable and entertaining educational messages to the public on a daily basis.

Ambassador volunteers will be asked to participate in daily animal presentations, school programs, day camps, center tours, and special events.

In order to participate in the Wildlife Ambassador Volunteer Program, you must attend the Wildlife Hospital Orientation and Hospital Volunteer mandatory trainings. Click here to learn more and register now!
