Welcome to a website that gives basic information about the species that Michigan licensed wildlife rehabilitators get the most calls about.  This is to help you not only help wild animals, especially babies, but to know when the animals don’t need your help.


"If you talk to the animals they will talk with you and you will know
each other.  If you do not talk to them you will not know them, and what
you do not know you will fear.  What one fears one destroys."    
Indian Chief Dan George

Outside Cats Kill

In 2013, Scott Loss, research scientist with the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute, completed a study of predation on wildlife by feral and owned cats.  Outside cats kill 1.4 billion to 3.7 billion birds and 6.9 to 20.7 billion small mammals each year in the contiguous United States, being the largest source of human-related mortality to U.S. birds and small mammals.
