Wildlife Fish and Game
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. The Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center (SWCC) is sort of like The Island of Misfit Toys from Rudolph - they provide home, sanctuary and love for creatures that don't quite fit anyplace else and that have no place else to go. They provide a place that is the next best thing to being able to live wild and free in the animal's natural habitat when that, for whatever reason, is no longer an option.
