The 12-member Wildlife Rehabilitation Advisory Committee (WRAC) was formed in May 2018 to help Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) make a recommendation to the Fish and Wildlife Commission for wildlife rehabilitation related Washington Administrative Code. Four members of this committee were selected from the active wildlife rehabilitation community, four from the public, and four from the Washington Wildlife Rehabilitation Association.
The National Wildlife Rehabilitators Association/International Wildlife Rehabilitation Council Minimum Standards for Wildlife Rehabilitation Fourth Ed is a guiding documents for this group.
At the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, we celebrate diverse individuals who bring a wide range of perspectives. All are welcome to participate in our processes regardless of race, color, sex, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, status as a veteran, and basis of disability.
