What is Wildlife Rehabilitation?
Wildlife rehabilitation or rescue is taking in injured or baby wildlife
and rehabilitating them so they can be released back into the wild
as soon as possible.
I am licensed to just do mammals (including rabies vector) but do
take every type of animal or reptile or birds. I have resources in
the Virginia Beach area licensed for the birds. They will take them
when I get them, including eagles and hawks.
How We Do It (very, very short version)
Feedings depend on the age and condition of babies, some needing
formula as often as once every three hours. Babies must be kept fed,
warm, cozy and, as they get older, even challanged.
need to be trained to live independently in the wild before release.
The goal is to make everyanimal coming into our care an animal that
can live happily and as safely as possible in the wild
cages for the animal's re-entry into the wild are placed
in various parts of the woods or fields so the animal can slowly
adjust to release and its surroundings before being turned loose
again in the wild. See the play pen
for the little guys
