Press release

Eastern Sierra Wildlife Care, our community’s wildlife rehabilitation facility, needs volunteers. Volunteers play an important role in rehabilitating orphaned and injured wildlife and educating our community about local wildlife.

Learn all about volunteer opportunities by attending our free Volunteer Orientation on Sunday, March 20, from 1-3 PM at the Imagination Lab, 621 W. Line, #204, Bishop. Call ESWC at 760-872-1487 to reserve a spot.

Those volunteers who want to work with the animals can rescue, reunite and transport them, feed and clean at the Center, learn medical skills, work with our education animals or be a foster parent by caring for babies at your home.

Two training workshops are required for volunteers who choose any aspect of animal care.

There are dozens of other ways to help: fundraising, publicity, photography, facility repairs or outreach projects like barn owl nest boxes. You can answer phones, screen cages, or do supply runs. We need help with social media. Rescue volunteers respond to calls when they can; some have specialized skills and equipment for climbing trees for rescues or returns. There is a place for everyone.

Give ESWC a call at 760-872-1487 and reserve your place now for the Volunteer Orientation, Sunday, March 20, 1-3 PM .
