General Wildlife Safety Tips

1

Do not touch, approach, or chase wildlife.

2

Maintain a safe distance. Always maintain space between wildlife and where you are standing. Wildlife should always feel like they have enough room to get away.

3

Be alert – if an animal appears startled or changes it’s behavior, or walks away, you are too close.

4

Ask a parent before taking pictures of wildlife.


5

Most wildlife should not be fed. Get your parent’s permission before feeding smaller wildlife (like birds and rabbits). Most wildlife have specific dietary requirements.

Extra Tip For Parents

If you think you have found an injured or orphaned animal, it is best to contact a licensed wildlife rehabilitator immediately. The rehabber will guide you on how to help the animal. Animal Help Now is a FREE application you can download to your smart phone, or you can visit their website at AHNow.Org for the nearest licensed wildlife rehabilitator in your area.
