Caring for Wildlife: Top 10
- Protect the health and longevity of wildlife by driving with care.
- Reduce or eliminate use of pesticides and rodenticides. Poisons can work their way up the food chain.
- Plant native plants for the bees, the birds and … everything else.
- Wait for baby birds to fledge before trimming trees and brush.
- Keep your dogs and cats out of the urban wilderness.
- Turn off outdoor lights at night. Animals need a dark sky for feeding and breeding.
- Don’t feed the birds. Human food can harm our feathered friends rather than help them.
- Do not release domestic pets, snakes, birds, or fish into the wild.
- Baby wild animals may or may not need rescuing. Sometimes it’s best to let it be.
- If you see poaching, call the California Department of Fish & Wildlife at 858-467-4201.
