Sometimes wild animals get sick or are injured or lose their caregivers. This short book, part of a projected Animal Helpers series, describes how humans often help wild animals, including baby opossums, raccoons, even an owl. By nursing them back to health without trying to tame them, they help them return to their natural habitats. The large, usually two-page photographs are touching and informative, and the small size of the babies is seen as they are fed; for instance, a catbird dines on hal ...more

This photographic journal takes us behind the scenes in the day of a wildlife rehabilitator.

Rehabilitators feed and care for orphaned, sick, or injured wildlife. They also teach people about the rescued animals at wildlife centers. Teaching them about the specific animal as well as what to do if they find a hurt animal in the wild.

The desire is to return the animal to it's native environment. The photos in this book are just gorgeous, from owls, opossums, birds, fawn and more.

This is a fantasti

My Review: When wildlife animals become orphaned and injured, it is the job of the rehabilitators to care for them. In this book the photographic images will show how they care, feed and nurse them back to health. They use a special milk to feed young mammals like raccoon and use beak like tweezers to feed some birds. The rehabilitators also return animals back to their native environments.

The last few pages of the book compare and contrast rehabilitators and veterinarians, tell if animals are

I really liked seeing this book about what wildlife rehabilitators do; I volunteered at a wildlife rehabilitation center in the Houston area in high school, and it was the most interesting job I've ever had. This book talks about what rehabilitators try to do, and how, and why it's important. The photographs show a lot of different animals being helped in a wide variety of ways, and also show the other things that rehabilitators do, such as teach others about wildlife rescue and conservation.

Large color photos will catch the attention of youngsters and adults alike. This is a very simple introduction to wildlife rehab work. This would be an excellent addition to a humane education curriculum.
