Threatened & Endangered Certification for PA Wildlife Rehabilitators


Pennsylvania Game Commission permits for wildlife rehabilitators include two additional authorizations for certain classes of animals: rabies vector species (RVS) and threatened and endangered (T&E) species.

This class is intended to deliver the knowledge necessary for a general wildlife rehabilitation permittee to be authorized to receive, treat and rehabilitate threatened and endangered species in Pennsylvania. Upon successful completion, a general permit wildlife rehabilitator can apply for T&E certification to be added to their permit class.


Since general class rehabilitators already possess basic skills in stabilization, medical care, diet, rehabilitation, and release of distressed wildlife, this program is geared to understanding those aspects directly associated with receiving animals considered of special interest and listed as threatened and endangered in the Commonwealth.

Any rehabilitator can receive all wildlife species (even those outside of their permit class (mammal, non-raptor, raptor)). It is prudent for all rehabilitators seeking T/E authorization to be able to identify and give emergency care to all special listed species, even those outside of their permit class, so all species are covered in this course.

The information presented is also valuable to novice rehabilitator permittees, sub-permittees, capture and transport permittees, and volunteers.


A certificate will be awarded on completion of the course for six training hours.
