Education and Outreach

Education & Outreach

WRI promotes community education as well as wildlife rehabilitation education in Southeastern Virginia. We are dedicated to the preservation of wildlife through rehabilitation and education. It is essential for the public to understand the sensitive balance of human and non-human populations, the affect we have on the natural environment, and the best ways in which we can coexist.

Community Education

WRI puts the WILD in wildlife education! Our knowledgeable, professional, and passionate staff will entertain and educate through close encounters with real live animals! Nothing has a greater impact than the sight of a Great Horned owl or Red-tailed Hawk just feet away! WRI presents exciting and educational programs at nearly any venue and for any age group. Sample organizations include: school groups, community associations/civic leagues, senior facilities, etc.


Wildlife Rehabilitator Education

WRI offers a wide range of training class in-person and online. Depending upon your permit needs, we have licensed volunteers ready to help you learn more about becoming a wildlife rehabilitator or maintaining your license. Checkout our self-pace learning classes.


Community Outreach

Community outreach programs are offered by a licensed wildlife rehabilitator and are available year round. We have four education ambassador animals that we can use to educate the community about wildlife. Photos can also be taken with the animals. The Program is exciting, humorous and very educational. The program usually lasts about 1 hour.

We provide programming for all ages including community associations, schools, scouts, churches, daycares, libraries, senior groups, and more. Reservations need to be made at least 4 weeks in advance. There is no charge.
