Professional development

Sharing professional knowledge about wildlife care is an important part of our mission. Please contact us to learn more about these opportunities.

Workshops and consultation

Bird Ally X develops hands-on workshops for wildlife caregivers, presented at conferences and individual rehabilitation facilities. We also present lectures and talks on various rehabilitation topics.

Workshops include

  • An Introduction to Aquatic Bird Rehabilitation
  • Rehabilitating Herons & Egrets
  • Telephone intervention skills workshop
  • Introduction to the Ethics of Wildlife Rehabilitation


A limited number of internships are offered each year at Humboldt Wildlife Care Center. Interns participate in an intensive training program designed for future wildlife rehabilitators. It is recommended to begin by volunteering before applying for an internship.
