It's baby critter time

Wild Connections has gotten phone calls recently about abandoned or injured birds and animals. Unfortunately we can’t help. Here’s what to do:
Walk away from babies. It’s hard to do, but most baby animals and birds are still under their parent’s care, even if you don’t see an adult. She may be very close and ready to defend her young one. Give them space and they likely will be reunited.
Injured animals, if they’re not totally mashed by that car, maybe can be rescued. Contact a rehabilitation center:
