DCHS's Wildlife Center Plays NWRA Planning Host

SHARE:

The National Wildlife Rehabilitators Association (NWRA) annual symposium is being held in Madison from March 1-5, 2022.

Dane County Humane Society’s Wildlife Center is the primary planning host for this year's NWRA Symposium, along with two other local organizations: Wisconsin Humane Society's Wildlife Center (WHS) and the Wisconsin Wildlife Rehabilitators Association (WWRA).

The symposium, which will be held at the Madison Concourse Hotel, should be an excellent opportunity for people in the wildlife and environmental fields to network, present about their careers or research, and learn more about native wild species, veterinary medicine, rehabilitation techniques, and more.

This year’s theme, "Wellness for Wildlife," focuses on human, environmental, and wildlife health.

The symposium includes field trips, lectures, workshops, and social events. The field trips, held on Tuesday and Saturday, will showcase rehabilitation at DCHS and WHS, and allow participants to visit other local wildlife areas and facilities.

The symposium is slated to be fully in-person, but lectures will be recorded in case it switches to virtual due to COVID-19.
