  • Infant wildlife are seldom truly orphaned - Parents are usually nearby and young can often be re-nested.

  • Do not let children handle wildlife - Protect yourself and the animal from injury or disease by using gloves or towels.  Then, leave them alone.

  • Wildlife are not pets - It is cruel to raise wildlife yourself; they need specialized care.  If you find an injured animal, put it in a box with air holes, keep it warm, dark and quiet, and call a rehabilitator.

  • Prevent pets from attacking wildlife - Domestic animal predation on wildlife is tremendous, especially cats; so keep them indoors.

  • Pick up litter - Fishing line, plastics, batteries and cigarette butts are harmful.

  • Moving wildlife is illegal - Live trapping and relocating nuisance wildlife is cruel and a potential health hazard.
