Injured and Orphaned Wildlife

If you have found an injured or orphaned bird or animal:

  1. Never approach an animal you feel is dangerous. Err on the side of caution.
  2. Keep the animal warm.
  3. Do not give it any food or water.
  4. If possible, put babies back in their nest. In most cases, their mother is getting food and will return.
