Happy New Year Members!!

We hope you are well and looking forward to a healthy New Year! We hope this year brings wonderful new opportunities to continue to grow and expand! How about last year, WOW! We as rehabilitators withstood dealing with frantic rescuers, the challenges of not having volunteers, having to set up Covid approved drop-off sites (which meant you didn’t get to interact with the public), adapting to longer hours and adding more diligent sanitation to our standard requirements.

The MWRA Board of Directors would like to praise you all for your dedication and perseverance through this past year. We appreciate the hard work you put in to caring for our wildlife and still ready to continue to meet the challenges for 2021. You never cease to amaze us and keep us humble and energized to continue supporting you through the Maryland Wildlife Rehabilitators Association.

Visit the website, mwrawildlife.org, for information on upcoming education opportunities. Please continue to show your support by renewing your membership this year and if you can, to add your name to our website directory.

Remember, we are always here for you to provide any help you may need!

Keep up the amazing work!!!!

With pride,
MWRA Board of Directors

NWRA and IWRC take the position that taxa-specific protocols, based on scientific evidence and region-specific risk assessments, should serve as the basis for an informed approach to managing the risk of disease spread and for formulating any restrictions on wildlife rehabilitation….”
