The Retirement Challenges and Opportunities Committee invites UWRA members to a PowerPoint presentation titled, “Wisconsin wildlife rehabilitation: caring for sick and injured animals,” presented by Jackie Sandberg, Wildlife Training Supervisor at Dane County Humane Society’s (DCHS) Wildlife Center. The Center (assisted by local volunteers) helps over 4,000 sick and injured wild animals every year with the goal of releasing healthy animals back to their natural habitats.
DCHS is a private, non-profit, community-supported organization and is not affiliated with any government agency or national animal welfare organization. The Center is an open admission shelter accepting all animals that need assistance regardless of age, health status or temperament.
Jackie is the wildlife training supervisor at Dane County Humane Society’s Wildlife Center. She holds a master’s degree in conservation biology and sustainable development (UW-Madison) in addition to advanced state and federal wildlife rehabilitation licenses. She is interested in ornithological research including the fundamental effects of wildlife rehabilitation on local population dynamics and the success of specific individuals.
