This class is geared for those who are interested in pursuing their federal permit for songbird rehabilitation or those who volunteer for a licensed facility. You will learn how to identify baby birds and what appropriate diets for different species.

The class will be 4 hours and will include lunch. Class is taught by Joanna Weitzel who started rehabiltiating birds in 1996 and quickly became our go-to expert for songbirds.  She worked as the executive director of Carolina Wildlife Care and managed thousand of songbirds each year.

The mission of the Carolina Waterfowl Rescue is to provide rescue and rehabilitation for sick, injured, and orphaned birds as well as increase public awareness and appreciation for animals.

Carolina Waterfowl Rescue (CWR) is run by experienced, federally-licensed migratory bird rehabilitators specializing in birds. We strive to take the forgotten and unwanted animals that fall through the cracks with traditional rescues. We provide care for animals along with trained volunteers and avian veterinarians. We strive for the highest standards in animal care as well as promoting professionalism in the wildlife rehabilitation arena.

We work with animal control agencies, law enforcement and other rescues and assist with oil spills, hoarding and criminal cases involving birds.
