VINS Volunteer Transporter Training Download as iCal file
Sunday, December 03 2017, 1:00pm - 3:00pm
Volunteer VINS Volunteer Transporter Training
In the VINS Classroom

.
Love animals? Live in Vermont or New Hampshire? Have a car? Have some flexibility in your schedule? We need you! Help VINS rescue and rehabilitate injured wild birds by being a volunteer transporter!
.
Every year, VINS rescues and rehabilitates around 500 wild birds from all over the state of Vermont. All of these birds make it to us because someone sees them get hurt or finds them not looking quite right during the course of their normal day. Usually, they call VINS and we determine the best way to get the bird help. In most cases, the rescuer is able to box up the bird and transport it to VINS where we can evaluate and treat the injuries. The best chance a bird has to recover and be healthy enough for release back into the wild is to get to VINS as soon as possible. If a rescuer is unable to transport the bird they’ve found to us, that is where our transporters come in.
.
Interested?
If you are interested in being a transport volunteer, you are encouraged to attend our transporter training on Sunday, December 3. The training is not required, but provides a lot of helpful information and resources. The more transport options that we have across the state, especially in remote areas, the better we are able to help Vermont’s wildlife.
