OVERLOADING WILDLIFE RESCUE CENTERS
Some runaway baby fledglings might look injured and it may seem like a good idea to bring them to a wildlife vet. However, we have to remember that wildlife rescue centers in the Philippines are usually already overwhelmed, especially as they help animals rescued from illegal wildlife trade. But don’t fret. There are a number of other things to do to help baby birds. Keeping dogs and cats inside will help prevent them from attacking or playing with any lone fledgling. You can also make it a habit to check under your cars before backing up, in case baby birds choose to hide underneath. If you know that there’s a baby bird learning to fly around your outdoor spaces at home, you can also put up warning signs around your house to remind your family that there are feathered friends sharing your space.
