Wildlife rescue & rehabilitation

Wildlife rescue & rehabilitation

This mission is twofold: 1) for photos of animals and birds seen at accredited wildlife rescue centers and sanctuaries (exotic and wild animals rescued from being kept as pets, in roadside and other exhibits) and 2) for photos of animals and birds at or going to rehabilitation centers that prepare wildlife for return to the wild.

Please share photos of wildlife in accredited sanctuaries and centers for animals rescued from situations injurious to their wellbeing (exotics kept as pets, in circuses, the entertainment industry). The mission also can include photos of injured or orphaned wildlife being rehabilitated for release back into the wild. Be sure to include an explanation of what happened to the wildlife and why they were rescued or are in rehab. If you can add information on the rehab facility, that would also be great. Accredited sanctuaries do not include private owners that breed animals for pet ownership, display at malls and stores, or use in circuses, for example. The mission is not for animals in zoos, nature preserves or for pets.
