Animal Baby Names

Wild animals often leave their babies alone to hunt for food, and often the mother is nearby, but they do not hover over their babies the way we often suppose they would. Additionally, the Arizona Fish & Game website notes that'*Because deer and elk can transmit chronic wasting disease, they should almost never be brought in from the wild. "*If you have taken a young deer or elk from the wild, immediately take it back to exactly where you found it. Do NOT release it in a different location; its mother will not find it. ' The SWCC receives many, many baby birds and mammals each year that almost certainly were not really abandoned or orphaned. The SWCC also rescues and rehabilitates local injured wildlife, and their release rate is about 70%, so most of the animals they care for are able to be released to the wild. Others, such as the Mexican gray wolf and Leonardo, are not able to be released for a variety of reasons, and these animals are used in programs to educate children and visitors to the SWCC about the role of wildlife in our world. Throughout the nation there is an important struggle taking place. This struggle is the fight to save wildlife and the habitat they depend on for survival. There are many partners in this struggle, including the United States Fish and Wildlife Services, the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies and state wildlife agencies. These entities have come together to practice wildlife conservation by developing a wildlife action plan or the Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy for each state.
