Protect Our Wildlife VT

About Protect Our Wildlife VT

Our Mission is: Working to make Vermont a more humane place for wildlife

We envision a time when wildlife will be valued based on its intrinsic value and afforded better protections.
We serve as a voice to counter those who choose to exploit wildlife for their own interests.
We educate the public about the impact that personal and political decisions have on wildlife.

Who We Are:
Our team of volunteers is comprised of biologists, wildlife rehabilitators, educators, and other professionals who seek better protections for wildlife. We collaborate with nonprofits, both local and national, to ensure we are all working together to offer the best outcomes.

What We Do:
We support our state’s licensed wildlife rehabilitators.
We monitor wildlife legislation and rule making in an effort to keep the public informed and also ensure enforcement of existing laws and rules.
We provide referrals to people who are looking for humane ways to address wildlife conflicts.
We educate the public about the dangers and cruelty of trapping.


Newsletter Intern

April 2020 - August 2020 South Burlington, VT
“I enjoyed the research I had to do as well as the amount of advising and mentoring I received from my coordinator, Brenna. It was challenging, meaningful, and enjoyable, and I loved being able to reach out and make connections within the animal advocacy world. I also had my newsletter published in a few newspapers which felt amazing! ”
