Baby Bunnies / Spring Cleaning Tips

Baby season is here! Each spring, Tucson Wildlife Center receives many baby bunnies, birds and other wildlife that have been accidentally injured or orphaned when residents begin trimming trees, mowing lawns, or clearing brush piles. Here are a few spring-cleaning tips to help protect wildlife nesting and raising their young in your yard. *

Should you happen upon a baby wild animal you believe needs to be rescued, it is important to first take a step back and assess the situation before you act. Many times, it is best to leave the baby alone, as its best chance of survival is with its mother. Wildlife parents are very devoted to their young and will not intentionally abandon them. If you have found a baby and do not see the mother, call TWC for advice on next steps.
