About Program

Critter Care Wildlife Society, cares for orphaned, injured, and sick wildlife mammals of B.C. We heavily rely on interns to help us hand raise and care for these animals before we release them back into the wild. Tasks include general animal care, bottle feeding, medicating (under supervision), cleaning, enriching, maintenance etc. It is an amazing opportunity for people wanting to work in the field of animal care/ zoo/ conservation as it allows them to gain valuable hand on experience. We provided food and accommodation for free for exchange in this amazing opportunity.

Program Highlights

  • Hand raise orphaned animals.
  • Release rehabbed wildlife back into the wild.
  • Meet People from around the world.

Program Impact

We help Orphaned and injured wildlife with the end goal of releasing them back into the wild. The programme is intense and can be hard at time's, sometimes in baby season you maybe up every 3 hours feeding you orphaned wild babies, to give them a second chance of being in the wild. Help to conserve Canada's native wild mammals, and educate the public.
