How to Get Involved

Volunteers are the heart of the work we do!

These dedicated individuals work tirelessly to help us provide exceptional animal care to our resident animals and engaging educational opportunities to our guests, and help us maintain our beautiful facility. We offer our sincere gratitude and admiration for our volunteers here at the center. These remarkable people with generous and dedicated hearts share their time, hard work, and expertise in so many aspects to make this center great. Not only are they tremendous animal advocates, they are full of great ideas and continue to share their thoughts with one another and the Wildlife Images staff, contributing in any way possible to ensure that our native wildlife and fellow humans will have a safe place to come together to learn and understand the importance of taking care of the gifts we have been given.

Internships

At Wildlife Images we provide the hands-on experience people need when entering the rehabilitation and animal husbandry industry. We accept interns year-round. Spring and Summer internships are heavily focused on wildlife rehabilitation in our wildlife clinic which admits more than 1,000 patients a year. Fall and winter internships are geared toward the care and husbandry of more than 100 resident animal ambassadors. Regardless of the season, all interns will learn some aspects of both ambassador and wildlife patient care. Interning with Wildlife Images also provides experience in a fast-paced, team environment at a park visited year-round by the public.

Our Mission: Saving Wildlife

In this pursuit we aim to:

  • Involve people to share in our mission.
  • Educate people about the personal benefits of taking care of wildlife and the environment entrusted to our care.
  • Inspire people to make positive changes improving the world for wildlife.

More Than Just a Wildlife Hospital.

Wildlife Images has a very active educational component. Programs featuring birds of prey, mammals, and reptiles are featured. On-site programs are conducted in the J. David Siddon Community Education Center. Thousands of children visit the center each year on educational field trips, enhancing their knowledge of nature and wildlife preservation.
