Baby Season 101
Springtime gives birth to an abundance of baby wildlife. Here are some tips on keeping baby wild animals safe this season!
- It is common for some baby wildlife to be left alone while the parent goes hunting or foraging. Do not assume a baby animal is orphaned just because it is alone - allow time for the parent to return.
- If you find a baby bird on the ground, look for the parents or a nest to safely return it to. Sometimes they fall on the ground while fledging or in a storm.
- If you find a baby mammal, leave it be while you wait for a parent from a distance. If in danger, you can move it to a safer location wearing gloves.
- Do not feed baby wildlife. Improper diet lacks necessary nutrition and can even be toxic to the animal.
- If you suspect an animal is injured or orphaned, call Think Wild's wildlife hotline: (541) 241-8680

Construction and provisioning of the Wildlife Hospital was completed in Fall of 2019. It focuses on a community need for care of mammals and raptors and also coordinates with the local wildlife rehabilitation community. In 2021, the Hospital expects to reach a full capacity of 1,000 patients annually. But we need your help. Please consider helping us build a raptor flight center to rescue injured and orphaned eagles, owls and hawks.
