About Toronto Wildlife Centre

 

A hawk tangled in kite string 30 feet up a tree, a raccoon with a jar stuck on its head, a baby squirrel trapped inside a wall…

Out on the frontlines, the wildlife rescue team deals with the difficult and often dangerous wildlife situations that can’t be handled by members of the public. Toronto Wildlife Centre is the only wildlife centre in Ontario with a rescue program, and currently consists of 3 expert staff members and two rescue vehicles.

Rescue staff members are trained or certified in ice rescue, swift water rescue, slope evacuation, and chemical immobilization. And of course, Toronto Wildlife Centre rescue staff has extensive experience working hands on with wildlife.

 

About Wildlife Hospital

Providing medical care for wildlife requires skill and innovation: repairing a crushed turtle shell, diagnosing lead poisoning in a loon and suturing a laceration on a porcupine attacked by a dog is just an average day in the life of Toronto Wildlife Centre’s veterinary team.

With a dedicated team of wildlife veterinarians, our Wildlife Hospital is the only facility of its kind in Ontario. Volunteer veterinary specialists also donate their services to the Centre, including dentistry, ophthalmology, neurology and orthopedics.

Students and graduates seeking to further their knowledge of wildlife medicine apply for volunteer placements, internships, and externships at Toronto Wildlife Centre. People from all over the world have gained invaluable experience in our hospital.

Veterinary medicine for wildlife

Interested in becoming a wildlife veterinarian?

Since it is not yet possible to simply go to vet school and graduate as a wildlife veterinarian, people interested in working with wildlife must gain the skills they need through continuing education opportunities such as:

  • Internships, externships and residencies in zoo or wildlife medicine
  • Residencies in wildlife rehabilitation
  • Joining veterinary associations such as the Association of Avian Veterinarians, the Association of Reptile and Amphibian Veterinarians, the Canadian Association of Zoo and Wildlife Veterinarians, the American Association of Wildlife Veterinarians, the NWRA and the IWRC
