Wildlife Rehabilitation in Northwest Arkansas
Found an Animal in Need? Contact a Wildlife Rehabilitator Using the DIRECTORY Below!
We’ve put together a resource of everything we know about wildlife rehabilitation in the USA, Arkansas, and specifically Northwest Arkansas in case this blog post can be of service to you! We are not licensed rehabilitators and do not take in animals ourselves (although Lynn Scuimbato of Morningstar Wildlife Rehabilitation Center has talked us through an overnight chipmunk rescue). Instead of rehabbing, we try to help both people and planet through our Ripples project. Helping native wildlife is only part of what we do. Learn more About Us.
This week’s Making Ripples in the Free Weekly is all about local wildlife rehabilitators – superheros and heroines of any native universe. Check out the links below to locate a rehabilitator, learn more about native species, or find out the technical details on becoming a certified wildlife rehabilitator!
