Conditions of Membership - O.N.A.R.R.


If you are looking for a wildlife group to join, as a caring member, a support member, or a release site, and you are interested in O.N.A.R.R., you will need to be aware of our conditions of membership before applying.  Every carer must keep Caring Records on the animals in their care, and submit a History Sheet summary of those records every quarter.  ONARR supplies a format for you to use. 

All caring members must attend one workshop before beginning caring but must also complete two workshops per year to retain their license for the following year. 

Should you wish to care for more than one species, then you must attend at least one workshop per species, each financial year.

Release sites are licensed for releases only, not caring.  No history sheets or returns are expected. 

Support members do not complete any history sheets or documentation.
