Calgary Wildlife Rehabilitation Society does!

Whooo are they?

The Calgary Wildlife Rehabilitation Society (CWRS) is an organization dedicated to treating injured and orphaned wildlife, providing valuable outreach and education services to the community and engaging all volunteers in motivational work and skill building experience.

Whooo is invited?

You are! We invite you to kick off this year’s speaker series with a talk by Jenna McFarland at the Calgary Wildlife Rehabilitation Society about their organization’s efforts in and around Calgary, especially with owls.

Presenter: Jenna McFarland

Jenna McFarland has been a working zoologist for 17 years, the last 7 of which have been at the Calgary Wildlife Rehabilitation Society.  As the Director of Animal Care for Calgary Wildlife, she is responsible for the over 2500 patients that enter the clinic every year. Though her career began on the coral reefs of Australia, she now spends her days on land where she is particularly passionate about large rodents and neonatal mammal care. Jenna is an enthusiastic naturalist and loves to speak to groups of all ages about the wonders of the natural world.
