#wildliferehab

Can't believe it's only one week until Christmas!
Summer is in full swing - and wildlife can use your help! Leaving out water in elevated shallow bowls, bird baths and in the garden can make a big difference for wildlife! .

The Great Egret is the symbol of the National Audubon Society, one of the oldest environmental organizations in North America. Audubon was founded to protect birds from being killed for their feathers. Great Egrets fly slowly but powerfully: with just two wingbeats per second their cruising speed is around 25 miles an hour with a wingspan of almost 60 inches. Great Egrets live in freshwater, brackish, and marine wetlands. Great Egrets use similar habitats for migration stopover sites and wintering grounds. Where have you spotted these graceful flyers? Let us know and leave a comment below!

#Sheldon is a #brownpelican who is visually impaired. Sheldon cannot perch properly so the folks at the #homosassawildlifepark made her a special perch! #animalrehab #wildliferehab #wildliferescue #birds #floridastateparks

🎶 On the FOURTH day of Christmas, Dan brought to me...FOUR PINE MARTINS, Three Black Bear Cubs, Two Fuzzy Owlettes, and a Porcupette on a Piece of Dead Tree.

The orphans featured in our 12 days of Christmas were all residents in 2017. You read their stories, supported their care with donations, shared our laughter as they played, and wished them well as they were released to live their natural lives.

SPOTLIGHT ON RILEY #14/15 💙
One time, when Maple was taken to Southern Cross Wildlife Care with her broken leg, we asked Dr. Ralph if we could bring Riley on the next visit, for a full check over. Although he was happy and eating well, I guess we just wanted make sure 100%, there wasn’t more we could do to help Riley with his ‘failure to thrive’. Maybe Dr. Ralph with his incredible wildlife knowledge would find something! Strangely, just a few days before his scheduled visit, an emergency trip to the local vet occurred when Riley was spotted shaking his ear and in obvious pain. It turns out that an abscess had formed between his jaw and ear drum. A local vet cleaned it out and told us it was so severe it blew his eardrum making him deaf in one ear. They also suggested euthanasia, but we had faith that Dr. Ralph would be able to sort it out. Several return visits and antibiotics direct into his bloodstream via a cannula in his tail, and Riley was all fixed up. Dr Ralph isn’t convinced he is deaf in one ear and neither are we. All the originally planned tests were also done, revealing nothing more than Riley being a little low on salt (fixed via his favourite daily drink, Vytrate – kinda like Powerade), and a heart murmur. Dr. Ralph was confounded by this joey, who seemingly has nothing else wrong with him, and who does the most perfect poo imaginable. He wasn’t able to recommend anything to help him put on weight because his body is working properly on the inside. At least we could rest now, knowing that nothing we do to help him, will change it. That’s just our odd Mr. Riley.

It may not be turtle season in the Midwest, but it’s never too early to start planning for for next year’s turtle rescues.

One of my long time followers from Japan sent me a cute penguin toy and it had these clothes on it. So my mommy and aunt Lulu decided they would look better on me. I look like Santa without the beard, he he.

Big thanks again to the wonderful @hannyyyyy76 and @19maddyg our volunteer kangaroo whisperers. The joeys just adore them, as you can see with William, who was very quick to give Maddy a hug after they followed the girls down the hill to 'help' them prepare snacks. The majority of our work is tedious - it involves a lot of cleaning, picking up poo, laundry etc, but it's easily rewarded in a moment like this one. 💙 #macropod #kangaroo #kangaroocare #kangaroojoey #wildlife #wildliferefuge #wildliferehab #wildlifecarer #wildliferescue #rescuesofinstagram #instaanimal #instaroo #instacute #thedodo #fortheanimals #charity #saveourwildlife #makeadifference #conservation #volunteer #australianwildlife #seeaustralia #australia #newsouthwales #eurobodalla #batemansbay

This sweet little female American kestrel is currently residing in our animal hospital with a permanent wing injury. We hope to keep her and put her into our propagation department so that she can (hopefully) have lots of babies for release to the wild. American kestrel populations are in decline in many areas, including right here in Missouri. Possible reasons for the species' decline include increased predation by Cooper’s hawks, exposure to pesticides, and competition at nesting sites by invasive species.

Secretary birds are by far the tallest raptors, averaging between 3 and 4.5 feet, and are amazing birds to work with 💥

It's already Day 4 of 12 Days of Christmas at Salthaven! Today we'll be focusing on our national animal the beaver! When one thinks of a beaver, you think of Canada’s national symbol, a proud and honorable animal. But did you know that they secrete a compound called castoreum that is FDA approved for a natural flavoring of vanilla? Next time you have that vanilla flavored drink at Starbucks you might need to give a shout out to your national animal as a thank you!

Critter care sponsorship programs are still available for that special someone on your Christmas list! So if you want to give something unique this holiday season then check out the link in the bio!

On the halfway mark of our 12 days, we are shifting our gears to that of water dwelling animals! Each breeding season, Green Herons pair up with a single mate, performing extensive courtship displays. Both the male and female work together to brood and feed the chicks. The chicks may stay with their parents for more than a month after leaving the nest, as they learn to forage. Unfortunately for this little one, he was unable to learn from his parents having been orphaned at a young age. After some learning of how to be a heron, including catching small fish, he was released back out into the wild.
FUN FACT: The Green Heron is one of the world’s rare, tool-using bird species. It uses items like bread crusts, insects, earthworms, twigs, and feathers as fishing lures; It drops the objects it can find on the surface of the water to entice small fish.
