POTENTIAL WCB BENEFITS
IT COULD CREATE A UNITED COMMUNITY OF WILDLIFE REHABBERS WHO TRUST ONE ANOTHER
A united community where rehabbers can trust one another and know that everyone is working from the same mindset and starting from the same, minimum standards: putting the wildlife casualties first.
IT COULD CREATE MUCH HIGHER STANDARDS OF CARE FOR OUR UK WILDLIFE CASUALTIES
The WCB could raise much higher standards of care for our UK wildlife (that only continue to get improved upon) and trust and shared knowledge growing within the WCB community.
IT COULD PROVIDE BADLY NEEDED EMOTIONAL & MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT FOR UK WILDLIFE REHABBERS
Emotional support for wildlife rehabbers is essential. The WCB will fund regular ‘Compassion Fatigue’ sessions for all badge holders, with professional coaches. WCB has already funded some of these for those developing the badge and the feedback was that they helped a great deal.
IT COULD INITIATE A POOLING OF DATA, EXPERIENCES AND INSIGHTS FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY, ALLOWING EVERYONE TO GENERATE AND COLLATE MORE KNOWLEDGE AND IMPROVE THEIR WILDLIFE CARE EVEN MORE
A pooling of data, experiences and insights from across the country could be instigated, allowing everyone to generate more knowledge and improve their wildlife care even more.
