WLREHAB: The Wildlife Rehabilitation Mailing List
The WLREHAB list serves the purpose of allowing information sharing between wildlife rehabilitators. Note that "wildlife rehabilitation" is defined as the professional care of injured and orphaned wildlife by properly licensed individuals with the goal of releasing healthy and fully functional animals back into the wild. Information posted to WLREHAB should pertain to ***CLINICAL WILDLIFE REHABILITATION***, and *NOT* related topics such as environmental issues, debates, politics, or religious/spiritual beliefs. Because the volume of mail can be heavy at times, it should not be used as a chat list.
This is a professional list for wildlife rehabilitators, veterinary and wildlife professionals and those interested in wildlife rehabilitation, and is to be used as such.
***IF YOU ARE NOT A LICENSED WILDLIFE REHABILITATOR - YOU MUST INDICATE THAT IN ALL OF YOUR POSTS TO THE LIST (in your signature line). In addition, ALL others MUST include their experience with wildlife rehab in posts to the list as well as some members of the list are not licensed rehabilitators.
WLREHAB is a *privately owned* mailing list. Posts to the list are not moderated (unless a specific account is being moderated for correct subject and content until such time as list members understand and follow the posting guidelines. Posts however, are not checked for accuracy by the list owner. By joining the list, participants agree not to hold liable any list member or list owner of WLREHAB for damages, including any resulting from *YOUR VOLUNTARY PARTICIPATION* in the list.
As a subscriber to this list, you agree to abide by the list rules. Anyone who does not follow them will be removed from the list by the listowner. A group of list members may act as "moderators,” so you may be contacted by one or more of them regarding inappropriate posts. Please respect what they say. **Remember, subscription to this list is a privilege, not a right; please use it as such**. This list was relocated to Yahoo Groups from its former home at nodak.edu on 15/11/2009.

Other Wildlife Rehabilitation Mailing Lists on Yahoo Groups
WLPro (Wildlife Rehabilitation Professional) Mailing List
This list is restricted to professional wildlife rehabilitators and others in related professions, to share information, protocols, and case discussions on the care and release of orphaned, injured, or sick wildlife. Membership is restricted to persons who are active rehabilitators, legally and lawfully licensed to rehabilitate in their prov/state. Rehabilitators working as subpermittees, assistants, etc., are welcome to apply and will be considered. Not all prov/states issue licences for rehabilitators, therefore, membership is also restricted to those who are current members of their provincial/state rehab group and at least one other international group (IWRC or NWRA). Other wildlife professionals, i.e. Vets, Biologists, Techs, MNR, DNR, F&G, and NWCO personnel, etc., are welcome and will be allowed to participate, providing they work with wildlife or in a related field and/or are accredited/licensed in their profession.
The list is monitored for content. Anyone applying for membership to WLPro is sent an application via email. Perspective members must return the application within 14 days and will be screened and approved for membership by the listowner and moderators.
This list is not suitable for the discussion of animal rights; the keeping, trade, or sale of wildlife as pets; or unreleasable wildlife placement. If those beliefs are your agenda, do not sign up. This list is for discussing current, factual, documented, and referenced, information about our professions and the animals in our care.
