The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife will be forming a Wildlife Rehabilitators Advisory Committee to improve the state's wildlife rehabilitation program and the care that is provided to injured and orphaned wildlife.
Wildlife rehabilitators answer questions and if necessary, properly care for sick, injured and orphaned wildlife. Wildlife rehabilitators donate their time and do not charge for their services.
Resumes are now being accepted from all interested applicants. Applications will be reviewed for a person's expertise, experience and geographic distribution throughout the state.
For more information on the committee, its makeup and duties, and how to apply to serve on it, visit njfishandwildlife.com/news/2011/rehabcommittee.htm on the division's website.
