The importance of wildlife rehab in Pennsylvania
Countless wild animals in Pennsylvania are injured or maimed every year by vehicles on roads as well as the effects of habitat loss or damage, poisoning, and myriad challenges to wildlife at all stages from infancy to adulthood–mostly due to human behavior.
Wildlife rehabilitators in Pennsylvania work to nurture, heal, medicate, rehabilitate, and when all goes as planned–release back into the wild those animals that can be saved. Their almost-entirely volunteer work is intense and under-rewarded, financially and otherwise. They receive no government funding and their only support is through private contributions. Yet their financial costs are considerable, for food, medications, housing, and daily care of animals.
How wildlife rehabilitators help Pennsylvania’s endangered animals
Did you know: More than a dozen birds, including the short-eared owl and two types of heron, four bat species, the Northern Flying Squirrel, and the Least Shrew, are on the endangered species list in Pennsylvania? Wildlife rehabbers play an important role in the protection and rehabilitation of injured, orphaned, and sickened endangered animals.
About Give Pennsylvania Wildlife a Brake
What started as a Facebook community, concerned about the wildlife-vehicle collisions on roads in Pennsylvania, evolved into a broader concern for wildlife rescue and rehab–and the support of those who are in the trenches doing it. Behind the community are private citizens who care deeply about Pennsylvania wildlife and are committed to a future free from roadkill.
