More than 400 volunteers help WildCare staff programs at its San Rafael center throughout the year. Volunteer opportunities include helping in the wildlife hospital, becoming a nature guide and assisting with educational programs. Volunteers also provide transportation for animals from the center to other facilities or to release sites. In addition, WildCare offers internship opportunities.
