BIOL 231 - Wildlife Rehabilitation Fundamentals

(3)
This course is designed to prepare intended individuals for careers in the field (or related fields) of wildlife rehabilitation as seasonal or full-time staff members, individually licensed permit holders, or as sub-permits or volunteers. This emerging field of study is in response to demands for trained professionals to provide aid for injured, orphaned, sick, and displaced native wildlife in our communities. This course will thoroughly investigate all aspects of rehabilitative care including, but not limited to regulations, standards and ethics, natural history, human and animal safety, humane solutions and public education, establishing a facility, triage, nutrition, handling and feeding techniques, zoonoses, transport, caging requirements, and release criteria. Additional time is spent on an in-depth look at rehabilitation protocols of category 1 species in Ohio which includes hands-on opportunities to appropriately learn and master some of technical skills needed to perform necessary functions. Completion of this course with a passing grade will provide the student with a formal Certificate of Attendance (valid for 3 years) which fulfills the class training requirement portion of the formal application package for an Ohio Division of Wildlife Category 1 Rehabilitation Permit.

Offered each Spring.
