Have you found a wild bird, mammal, reptile, or amphibian that might be in trouble?
If you are unsure whether the animal needs help or whether it could be exhibiting normal behaviour, you can find information on "What constitutes a wildlife emergency?" on the International Wildlife Rehabilitation Council
website, where they identify situations and problems that require immediate attention : IWRC: wildlife emergency
IWRC has more help files on its international website: Wildlife International help files
If the animal does appear to be in crisis, please contact a wildlife rehabilitator as quickly as possible. To find a wildlife rehabilitator near you, please check the international wildlife rehabilitators directory: Rehabilitator Directory
If there are no wildlife rehabilators or facilities listed for your state, province, or country please contact your government agency responsible for wildlife. The government agency should also be contacted if you are concerned about possible illegal activities involving wildlife.
An international wildlife agencies directory can be viewed here: International Wildlife Agencies
