The Rotary Club of Burnaby met at its new home the Riverway Golfcourse.  The presentation of the day was given by the Wildlife Rescue Association of BC whose mission is to provide leadership in rehabilitating wildlife and in promoting the welfare of wild animals in the urban environment.

The Wildlife Rescue Association of BC is a charitable, not-for-profit society, located in Burnaby, British Columbia.

Wildlife rehabilitation involves the treatment, physical therapy and care of injured, orphaned and pollution damaged wildlife. Most of their patients have been impacted by human activities and loss of habitat. WRA's objective is to return healthy animals to their natural habitats, without taming or habituating them. Patients are held in captivity only until they are able to live independently in the wild.  

The presentation was made by Yolanda Brook and Krystal Brennann.

Yolanda Brook is the Communications Coordinator at the Wildlife Rescue Association of BC. She has a degree in communications and a post-graduate diploma in journalism. As well as editing the WRA newsletter To The Rescue , Yolanda will be developing our online activities and finding new ways to raise the profile of the organization.

Krystal Brennan is the Education Coordinator at the Wildlife Rescue Association of BC.  She has a diploma from BCIT's Renewable Resources program and is persueing a degree in Ecological Restoration.  Krystal manages educational displays and wildlife presentations for people of all ages around the Lower Mainland.
