Post Volunteers Needed for Division of Wildlife Transport Team
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR DIVISION OF WILDLIFE TRANSPORT TEAM

Information Meeting February 28

What happens when a concerned citizen calls the Division of Wildlife (DOW) to report she has found sick, injured or orphaned wildlife? In many cases, the Division of Wildlife’s volunteers spring into action to capture and transport that creature to a rehabilitator. Armed with training and the right tools, the team helps with small mammals, as well as birds and raptors. A songbird with a broken wing, a raccoon hit by a car, or a pelican caught in a fishing line may each be a beneficiary of the Wildlife Transport team.

Interested people are needed to join the team in the Denver metro area including Boulder, Lafayette, and Louisville. To participate, you must be a registered volunteer with the Division of Wildlife, attend a general orientation and separate mandatory project training, have reliable transportation and be willing to travel large distances in the metro area, and finally, be comfortable working with sick and injured animals. Interested and dedicated citizens who believe that wildlife should be saved regardless of the time, effort or species involved are welcome to join.

Volunteers are trained in the use of the equipment and the best means of capturing and handling wildlife. Once trained, they carry pagers and cover a 24-hour on-call period, midnight to midnight and must be available at least two weekdays per month. Approximately 20 volunteers are needed at this time.

An information meeting is scheduled for 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, February 28, 2007 at the DOW Hunter Education building in Denver. Call Elaine Lockey at (303) 291-7226 to register.
