Wildlife rehabilitation is the treatment and care of injured, orphaned, or sick wild animals so that they can be released back to the wild

Wildlife rehabilitation is the treatment and care of injured, orphaned, or sick wild animals so that they can be released back to the wild. Rehabilitation begins when an animal is found and reported to a wildlife rehabilitator, or seized from the illegal wildlife trade or a poacher. The rehabilitator will examine the animal to determine the extent of the injury and the probability of successful rehabilitation

I recently came across a baby raccoon on the side of the road about to waddle out into busy oncoming traffic. I immediately stopped the car to help him. Despite being shouted out by angry drivers who told me I was a crazy person, I was able to scoop him into the woods and out of harms way with a large piece of cardboard I found in my car (I didn't physically touch him because I knew that raccoons can carry rabies). I cried all the way home thinking I should have done more for him. This event prompted me to download this book to find out more about wild animal protocol. I learned exactly what method to follow to determine how/if the animal is orphaned or injured, how to capture it if need be, and how to safely transport it to a proper wildlife rehabilitator. Often times, the animal is just fine & better off being left alone--like in the case of my baby raccoon. Every person who loves creatures great & small should read this book simply as a prerequisite for loving them. This book will give precise & professional knowledge needed to exist in harmony with our wild birds & mammals and how & when to lend a helping hand.

being a wildlife rehabber myself, I purchased this book to be included in my reference library. Some good information, but not a very deep book. Probably better than searching the internet for solutions. An underlying theme I noticed is how she makes the effort to show how good she is, and how ridiculous members of the general public are.

The majority of the time you're going to find someone who is a licensed wildlife rehabilitator if you make the calls and ask vet clinics all around. However, there may be a time when things like the holidays or incidents where there is a delay on the rehabber getting there or sometimes there may be a case where they only take certain species in. After having to care for and release a baby woodpecker, I bought this book and decided to learn all I can about wildlife care. It is very informative. In my case, it was Xmas break & the rehabber couldn't come out. My cousin had called numerous vet clinics and numbers but found no one available to take the bird in at the time. So, she gave it to me & thanks to the fact that I have worked with some wildlife in the clinic & even cared for a squirrel, I was able to care for the little bird properly & release it successfully. It took 3 days to look after the bird day and night. When her kids found it, is was truely abandoned w/no nest, parents, or siblings & it had been raining over the Xmas holiday. We released it Xmas morning & the bird is seen & heard almost every other day hunting for food & hanging w/the other birds. He's already built his own home inside a tree, though it's hard to tell which one, but is seen hanging out frequently in a tree w/the other birds and pecking on trees. Twiggy has grown into quite a bird now & I can't wait to see little woodpeckers in the future. It is very important for the reader to understand how important it is to find a licensed wildlife rehabilitator by all means and that it is in fact illegal most everywhere to care for wildlife on your own and take it into your own home, but in Twiggy's case, we had no choice & thanks to reading this and all the wildlife books, he was given the best care possible as I went along w/the advice by the rehabbers on woodpecker care in all the books I have bought. This book may, too, one day prove useful, especially since I am seriously considering volunteering at a wildlife rehab center to help more birds like this and other animals along with finishing up my vet tech degree & certification.

This is THE "go to" guide for ANYONE who can't pass by an injured or endangered animal. Even if you don't read the book, you'll want to keep the simple flow chart-style outlines on hand for immediate use in an emergency! The book clearly outlines when intervention is necessary, provides understanding of unweaned babies of many species, and gives thorough instructions of how to handle most situations.

After having to stop by the road in North Dakota to help a dying young deer that a young driver ahead of me had hit, I realized I have to know more of what to do to help injured wildlife. This is well described and I guess it's good to make sure folks do realize these are wildlife and not to take them home necessarily...that might have been too obvious to me but I think it's still good to point out in case some people who read this book really are clueless about the balance of nature. I'm not better equiped to help out if needed, while waiting for a wildlife official, vet or game warden to come over and take over care (or, for me to help the injured animal until I get him/her to a vet asap). Great handbook

I've recently become a volunteer in the Wildlife Department at our local SPCA. When people call in, I am expected to know what general direction to send them in depending on the situation they have. This book has provided so much information for my little brain - in an easy to read/easy to remember form. I'm only half way through but am loving it!

Must have book for animal nuts like myself who can't just pass on by if I see an injured animal needing medical care. Helps by giving basic information critical often in the first few minutes or hours upon finding an injured creature. Not meant to train someone to be their own vet or to rehabilitate a wild animal thoroughly but enough guidance to buy someone time to get animal to a professional wild life expert.
