The Annual NYSWRC Seminar

As of now, we have not cancelled our Fall 2020 conference. We will decide in the summer based on the most up-to-date info available on COVID-19.

We are also discussing all options available to us, and what it will entail to have an online conference. This would be scaled back on quantity of topics, and all possibilities for how it would be presented are on the table. If this is an area in which you have expertise, and you would like to help us, please reach out at

Culminating its year-long efforts to support the rehabilitator in the field, NYSWRC sponsors an Annual Wildlife Rehabilitation Seminar: a dynamic, weekend-long educational event designed to help everyone from the beginning to the advanced rehabilitator, as well as interested veterinarians.

With in-depth programs staged by Wildlife Rehabilitation experts from throughout the US and abroad, typical subject areas include:

  • Nutrition/Husbandry
  • Diseases
  • Medical Management/Medications
  • Rehabilitation Techniques
  • Basic Workshops/WetLabs

The weekend offers participants the unique opportunity to communicate their interests, share experiences, and voice concerns.

The NYSWRC Seminar also provides an opportunity to take the Department of Environmental Conservation RVS (rabies vector species) course, required for individuals to rehabilitate raccoons, bats and skunks in NY.
