If you find a baby animal your first initial reaction is to move the baby or take it somewhere safe. This may not be needed and can cause more issues, a lot

of baby animals are not abandoned. You should keep the animal safe

by protection it from predators but before removing from the area

you've found it call for immediate advise. A lot of animals leave

their young on their own during foraging such as deer and most

varieties of birds around fledging. This also massively depends

on the age of the animal. Do not offer food or water unless

you've been told this is okay, This will prevent any further injury,

dietary problems or digestive issues at a later date.

When you call make sure you describe it well.

  • Is it bald, does it have down, is it fully furred/flighted?

  • Is its eyes open?

  • Is it able to walk, or fly?

  • Hows it overall health appear, does it have any symptoms?

  • Is it injured?

  • Where was it found, shrubbery, in open space, in town etc?

  • Whats the predatory population like, are they going to get hurt?


Once the species and age can be determined and whether it is injured 

and in need of rescue you'll be asked one of three options.

  1. Locate and place back in nest.

  2. Leave them where they are and watch from a distance if parents return.

  3. Bring in, put in a warm secure box and take straight to the rescue.
