The Wildlife Rescue Association of BC

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Wildlife Rescue!

Volunteers are at the heart of our organization, helping us with daily functions including animal care, answering wildlife helpline calls, and transporting patients to our hospital and into the wild for release. We couldn't do what we do without the help of amazing, dedicated volunteers. 

The availability for our positions changes throughout the year, so we may not have your desired role available at this time. However, we recruit MANY volunteers between February and April for our busy summer season each year. 

Please feel free to complete an application and you will be invited via email when the next volunteer information session is scheduled. You will be then be added to a training wait list and invited to attend a training session when volunteer shifts become available for your desired role. 

Please note: All volunteer positions require an intermediate level of English, proof of current Tetanus vaccination, willingness to provide us with a criminal record check and proof of Covid-19 vaccination.
