Wildlife Rehabilitation Regulations - 2004
survey and study provides a current analysis of the state regulations
that governed wildlife rehabilitation in the United States during 2004.
It provides a view of the trends in changes to the same regulations over
a 10 year period, when compared to the results of prior studies
conducted in 1994 and
1999. The results of this and the prior studies
have proven very useful for wildlife rehabilitators and wildlife
agencies engaged in contemplating changes or revisions to existing
results suggest that state wildlife rehabilitation regulations are
maturing to the extent they are changing less frequently and less
substantively. Additionally, likely due to funding pressures facing
wildlife agencies, the more recently implemented regulations favor less
complex permitting systems that are less time consuming to administer.
