About this book

Rescuing injured wildlife requires careful preparation to ensure the safety of both the rescuer and the animal. This informative guide teaches would-be rescuers how to identify an animal in need, capture that animal, and safely transport it to a wildlife rehabilitator. Real-life animal rescue stories provide insight into the triumphs and risks of wildlife rehabilitation. It explains exactly what to do, and what not to do, when an animal in distress is found, and how to determine the status of an injured creature using easy-to-follow flow charts. It presents instructions on safe-capture methods, emergency care, transportation and finding a professional wildlife rehabilitator.
