Welcome to the online version of our Basic Wildlife Rehabilitation course. This course is for beginning wildlife or novice rehabilitators seeking formal education with a  hands-on lab! The structure is a hybrid format of live video lectures hosted on Zoom, giving you access to the expertise and knowledge of our instructors, paired with asynchronous (pre-recorded) sections which you complete on your own. We estimate that live lectures will total about 7 hours and asynchronous work (homework, pre-recorded lectures, and exam) will take about 8+ hours. Basic online will take place over 8 days but may vary depending on your location.

The course may have either an in-person† or virtual lab so please read the description of your course carefully before signing up— you must attend all four live sessions and a lab, successfully complete the homework, forums, and an exam to achieve a passing grade. If you are signing up for a virtual lab, be sure you are able to get all the needed materials (listed below). Schedules vary depending on your location, please verify that you can attend all live lectures and one lab session before registering.

This class is meant to be a flipped classroom experience. We challenge you to do your homework and readings before you get to your class. This will facilitate a richer learning experience during the course and in the online classroom.
