RESOLVING WILDLIFE CONFLICT
RACCOONS IN YOUR TRASH? SQUIRRELS IN THE ATTIC?
From chipmunks to birds and beyond, humans and wildlife are finding themselves sharing living spaces more and more, and the possibilities for conflict can be as diverse as the humans and wildlife themselves.
Appreciating the spaces we share with other living things is important to resolving wildlife conflicts. Tolerance and understanding are also crucial. Many so-called wildlife “problems” may not really be problems at all, but a lack of understanding about wildlife and their ways.
Prepared with information and understanding, many conflicts can be satisfyingly resolved without any loss of life – especially where wildlife babies are involved. In fact, non-lethal solutions tend to be more permanent.
If you are having a conflict with wildlife, please contact THWC. We can advise how to humanely solve your conflicts with wildlife in a way where both humans and wildlife win.
How Can I Help?
The average cost for one week of basic rehabilitation care varies with the type of animal that comes to Twin Harbors Wildlife Center: $35 for each bird, $55 for each baby mammal, and $79 for each raptor. In order to provide the necessary care to rehabilitate wildlife, we rely heavily on individual donors like you.
