Christina Carrieres is the Senior Wildlife Rehabilitator for the BC SPCA Wild Animal Rehabilitation Centre (Wild ARC) in Metchosin, near Victoria.  She’s also the president of the Wildlife Rehabilitators Network (WRN) of BC.

In addition to her hands-on work with wildlife, Christina has developed specific protocols, including diet, housing and therapies, for the rehabilitation of many species of local wildlife that are being applied across the province.

Her talk focussed on the diversity of species requiring attention, and the growing need for wildlife rehabilitation services.
