Governance Training for Wildlife Rehabilitators

To help support licenced volunteer wildlife rehabilitation organisations, WIRES has worked closely with the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) to create free online training courses in leadership, training and conflict resolution.

NPWS is focused on implementing new initiatives to help support the growth and long-term sustainability of the wildlife rehabilitation sector.

These topics were recommended by NPWS and WIRES has worked with NPWS to make these courses available for free.

The courses have been created to assist organisations and individual volunteers wanting more support in these areas. They will be of particular assistance to new committee members and other volunteers who take on leadership and training roles in their respective organisations.
