The National Wildlife Rehabilitator's Association (NWRA) is dedicated to improving and promoting the profession of wildlife rehabilitation and its contributions to preserving natural ecosystems.
In 1982, a group of visionaries dreamed of a national network of wildlife rehabilitators working together to get the educational resources needed to do the best possible for wildlife care. On August 25, 1982, this dream became a reality when the National Wildlife Rehabilitators Association (NWRA) was organized. One of the people to make this happen was Walter Crawford, Jr.

In honor of this amazing man, World Bird Sanctuary donated a falconry glove frequently used by Walter for NWRA to place on auction. The auction closes September 3, 2016. The successful bidder is shipped the glove free of charge with a letter from World Bird Sanctuary verifying its authenticity. All proceeds from the auction go to benefit NWRA’s educational and training programs for wildlife rehabilitators and educators.

From time to time, NWRA is asked what is needed to help us with our mission—to help with the many activities, programs, and projects underway. We have created this Wish List to itemize needs. Thank you for considering the option of donating needed items!
In an effort to provide better member services, NWRA seeks member input. Periodic online surveys cover a variety of topics and are designed to be short and efficient. Members are notified of each survey through a Member Email. Responses help NWRA focus on member needs to plan and guide improvements in benefits and services.
NWRA is able to offer this service to members due to a partnership with QuestionPro.
