ICYMI: Hocking College Hosts Introduction to Wildlife Rehabilitation Workshop

by Hocking College Contributing Writer

Hocking College hosted an Introduction to Wildlife Rehabilitation workshop on Sunday, March 31. Wildlife Rehabilitation, or the process of nurturing orphaned and injured wildlife back to health, interests many people from all walks of life. From what people watch on television, wildlife rehab can appear to be a very glamorous activity, with volunteers gracefully freeing bald eagles into the sky and caring for adorable baby animals.
