A wonderful local wildlife rehabilitation organization that your niece might
explore is CLAWS, inc.
It is just outside of Chapel Hill.

We've been involved with our local raptor rehabilitation and education
center in Eugene, Cascades Raptor Center, for many years as volunteers. One
of the things CRC does very well, is recruit young people as volunteers.
And, some of these students get really "hooked" on these fascinating birds,
they take more responsibility over time, and some end up studying to go into
wildlife rehabilitation or similar types of jobs. They learn the types of
care-giving needed for such specialized birds, so even thought hey aren't
veterinarians, per se, they do some amazing work with these gorgeous birds.
So, if there is a wildlife rehabilitation center nearby, that might be a
very interesting place to initially volunteer, to see how she liked it, the
to pursue the idea of a career in it, should she turn out to become as
smitten as so many do!
