NJAWR would like to announce a new easy-reference brochure, “Help!
I found a wild animal…What should I do now?” Designed
to assist wildlife rehabilitators, ACOs, shelters, and other animal
care professionals, the brochure provides basic information for the
general public on how to determine if a wild animal needs help, how
to safely secure it, and how to find the nearest licensed rehabilitator.
Common baby season scenarios are included!
The brochure is now available to download! Click
The New Jersey Association of Wildlife Rehabilitators (NJAWR) began
with a meeting between licensed New Jersey wildlife rehabilitators
and representatives of the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife
(NJDF&W) to discuss issues directly affecting the rehabilitation
community. Incorporated as a non-profit organization the following
year (1991), NJAWR continues to serve as an excellent resource for
information and educational opportunities for wildlife rehabilitators
and many other individuals working in related fields.
