Wildlife rehabilitators work with animals that are ill or injured. One risk of our profession is the potential exposure to zoonotic diseases (diseases passed from animals to humans). Rehabilitators are viewed as a community resource due to our extensive outreach and education, and are often turned to for information regarding zoonotic diseases. This course provides information on the risks, prevention, and management of zoonoses, including acting as a resource to the public for information on zoonotic diseases. CE Hours: 3.5
