On Saturday November 16th, at the California Council for Wildlife Rehabilitators (CCWR) symposium, Nicole Carion of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CADFW) gave a glorifying endorsement of Wildlife Rehabilitation MD at the opening keynote presentation.
Because of her endorsement, the attention and enthusiasm at the symposium was very positive and numerous organizations have shown interest and are preparing to start the new year using Wildlife Rehabilitation MD.
Over the past few months we have been in discussion with Nicole about how WRMD is benefiting the state of California. It’s a bit premature to say, but we are nearly able to say for the first time in the states history, how many animals were cared for in the proceeding year, in real time.
Not only is she is excited by the prospect of receiving the annual reports more timely, but also by the potential of a single data source aggregating the states data and highlighting patterns. The state will soon be able to recognize mortality events, a rise in migratory species and many other previously undetectable wildlife trends.
We are honored by Nicole’s and the Department’s support.
Thank you once again to Nicole Carion and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife!
