This Is Why

  • Help, rescue and rehabilitate Native North American wildlife
  • Take part in the rehabilitation of bears!
  • The centre is home to many mainly large animals including Black & Grizzly bears, coyotes, cougars, elk, moose, and other smaller animals.
  • Work in one of the most beautiful sceneries in northern beautiful British Columbia.
  • A ski area located right next to the town!

Our Volunteers and Interns are the backbone of the organization. It is your help and hard work that make caring for all the animals possible. The Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre has very few paid staff. The wildlife shelter is run by a dedicated group of volunteers.

  • Build and maintain animals enclosures
  • Feed and care for the animals especially Black & Grizzly Bears
  • Assist with capture and release
  • Educate the public

Working at a Wildlife Rehabilitation Center can be very intense at times because of the hours that you sometimes have to keep. With any luck, you will be working an five - eight hour day, but at times it can be up to 12 hours, depending on the number of admissions and their problems. Sometimes there can even be a 2 a.m. feeding. Volunteers will be expected to be involved in all aspects of the shelter. Your job will include feeding, food preparation, cleaning, laundry, administering treatment, participating in building projects, painting, etc...
