Colorado Parks and Wildlife Recruits Volunteers To Help Transport Sick, Injured Animals

Colorado Parks Wildlife Logo - smLAMAR, Colo. – Colorado Parks and Wildlife is looking for help in transporting sick and injured birds and small mammals. Each year volunteers help move dozens of injured animals to wildlife rehabilitation facilities near Pueblo and help relay them across the state.

Those interested in assisting will need to attend a training session Friday, May 2 at the Lamar Colorado Parks and Wildlife Office, 2500 S. Main St., across from Lamar Community College. The class will run from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. and will cover capture and transport techniques of wild animals and birds, safety and general volunteer procedures. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old and have reliable transportation. Once trained, volunteers operate on an on-call basis, as needed, for wildlife transports from the Lamar area.
