Greenwood Wildlife is always looking for members of the community interested in helping their local wildlife by joining our volunteer Transport & Release team. Our Front Desk often receives calls from individuals unable to transport the wild animal(s) they rescued to our facility. Our Transport & Release volunteers play an essential role in safely bringing these patients (ex.: corvids, songbirds, small mammals, waterfowl) to our center in north Longmont for treatment. We also regularly need transport to release patients back into the wild or to occasionally pick up equipment and supplies when the need arises.
Greenwood’s Transport & Release team will not be requested to capture/handle wildlife, but to transport animals already contained by the rescue party directly to our center, or from our center to a designated release site. To ensure your safety and that of our wild patients, orientation and proper training explaining our protocols will be provided by Greenwood staff. A Greenwood uniform, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and other supplies deemed necessary for this role will also be provided to our volunteers.
Transport & Release volunteers need to be responsive when contacted by our Front Desk team. Your dedication will be crucial in making sure our wildlife patients get released/cared for in a timely manner.
Our goal is to cover as much territory along the Front Range. Therefore, we’ve identified 2 transport service zones, which will slightly overlap in some areas.
Zone 1 (North) – Boulder County, Larimer County, and Weld County
Zone 2 (South) – Boulder County, Broomfield County, Weld County, and Denver City
