Wildlife Conflict Resolution by PhoneLearn how the Wildlife Hotline works, what we do, who we are, and how to become our kind of crazy.

Who We Are:We are a group of wildlife rehabilitators that started out with different rehab ‘clinics’ across Missouri & Illinois. We all fell in love with our work there, but saw the flaws in how traditional clinics did rehab. Plus, we started to notice some critical things that need to be in place in order to really make a different. At the top of that list is wildlife education. The best way that we have found to educate the public is to TALK to them WHEN they are experiencing a problem. That’s where the Wildlife Hotline comes in. Introductions: Around the Room
