Sometimes due to an animals’ natural history, they will be found in places that may seem unnatural to you (for example, a bird on the ground). These stages are vital in their growth and development and so, while they may seem vulnerable, they are actually perfectly healthy and are often still being tended to by their parents. Before acting and picking up any wild animal, please call a rescue center, MINAE or the local police and ask what you should do. Rescue centers, such as ours, can inform you on what to do, and through the phone, with the help of pictures, we can decipher if the animal is really in any danger or if it will be fine to leave alone.
