Wildlife Rehabilitation Advisory Committee

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.

Mission Statement

The WRAC will review and propose revisions to several Washington state wildlife rehabilitation regulations in WAC 220-450-060 through WAC 220-450-220.  Recommendations from this committee will inform the staff recommendations to the Fish and Wildlife Commission for changes.
