Wildlife Emergency

August 20, 2019

If you spend enough time in the desert, chances are you will encounter some wildlife! During our time in the field we've seen bobcats, javalina, desert tortoises, gila monsters, deer, fox, many birds and plenty of snakes. Most of the time all we need to do is simply give wildlife a bit of space and time but that's not always the case. If an animal is acting strangely, unable to move away or allowing people to get closer than normal it is cause for concern. Sometimes a little help is all these critters need to survive. If you think you may be able to do some good, there are several great organizations to help. Next time you come across injured wildlife, have this list handy. 


Note of caution, wild animals are dangerous and unpredictable, especially when injured or distressed.
