Greenwood is celebrating the amazing work that wildlife rehabilitators do on March 10!!! National Wildlife Rehabilitators Appreciation Day (NWRAD) was created to recognize and raise awareness about the thousands of licensed wildlife rehabilitators across the United States who selflessly and tirelessly care for orphaned and injured wildlife so that they can be released back into their natural habitats.
Here’s how you can help show appreciation:
1. Send your local wildlife rehabilitator a simple “Thank you!” card. You can send mail to:
P.O. Box 18987
Boulder, Colorado, 80308
2. Bring individually packaged snacks to rehabilitators! Sometimes these hard workers are so busy making sure all the animals are fed, they forget to feed themselves! If you decide to bring snacks to Greenwood, make sure to call ahead first (303.823.8455).
3.Wildlife rehabbers need supplies to do their job well. Donating money is a great way to ensure these heroes continue their work. Plus, it may be tax-deductible.
4. Tell your friends, neighbors, and co-workers about local rehab centers and rehabilitators. Often times, folks don’t know what to do with injured or orphaned wildlife. Like and share our page on social media to get the word to even more people!
