Since 1979 more than 135,000 animals have been treated by Wildlife Rescue.
Thanks to the support of individuals like you, Wildlife Rescue can provide a lifeline for animals in distress.
Wildlife Rescue rehabilitates wildlife affected by human activity and provides education to the public on co-existing with urban wildlife. Wildlife Rescue runs a wildlife hospital on the south shore of Burnaby Lake and treats animals from across Metro Vancouver, the rest of BC, and farther afield.
The role of the Board is to: provide leadership and oversight to Wildlife Rescue and its activities; represent the interests of its Members, and the broader community; ensure broad organizational accountability and transparency; and facilitate active and meaningful external relationships. Members of the board are passionate about Wildlife Rescue’s mission and are committed to the organizational values of respect, caring, creativity, and collaboration.
This is an exciting time for Wildlife Rescue, as it evolves and adapts to an ever-increasing number of injured wildlife brought to its Hospital. Over the last two years, Wildlife Rescue has worked hard to re-align organizational strengths to achieve greater mission achievement, in support of injured wildlife.
Wildlife Rescue has a long history of successes and is looking to bring in a number of new board members who are excited to be a part of the renewed growth and relevance of the organization. As the organization embarks on new and innovative fund development initiatives, board members will have the opportunity to play a collaborative role with senior staff in achieving these critical philanthropic goals.
