Wildlife rehabilitation is an important step taken to help and nurture orphaned or hurt wild animals. It helps bring them back to their original state, before being releasing back into the wild. Though there are multiple rehabilitation centers operate within Washington. The lack of a unifying association that would regulate the activities of these rehabilitation centers was felt.
This led to the formation of the Washington Wildlife Rehabilitation Association in 2003. Our nonprofit organization focuses on creating a network of similar rehabilitation centers and act as a networking or support system for them. We also provide educational resources and assistance to these centers and practitioners, to ensure that they can successfully carry out rehabilitation activities.
