Everyone needs help at some point, including wildlife. But animals, unfortunately, find it difficult to communicate their needs and problems to people. A warm heart, a keen interest and a genuine love for the preservation of life are some of the traits found in people working in the areas of wildlife conservation. The education of the general public is another task taken on by these groups as they seek to inform people about ideal behaviours for animals and people to coexist, which of course include the practice of humane wildlife prevention and control in areas such as Whitby.
Sometimes, people encounter situations involving our furry friends and are uncertain of how to respond. This is when these superheroes, championing the cause of coexistence, spring into action. They rescue, restore, and relax the animals and reintroduce them to the wild when it’s time. In places such as Whitby Ontario, these situations are commonplace as it is home to many wildlife species as well as to some of the friendliest and most professional groups of rescuers- those at the Soper Creek Wildlife Rehab Centre.
Skedaddle Joins Hands and Hearts with Soper Creek Wildlife Rehab Centre
As a wildlife control company, it is important to team up with organizations that share the common goal of protecting wildlife. That is why our team at Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control has joined forces with Soper Creek Wildlife Rescue. In some cases, a wildlife rehabber will receive calls about nuisance wildlife. Rehabbers do not have the tools or techniques a wildlife control company has such as heated baby boxes, ladders, thermal cameras or other methods to safely remove wildlife from a home. At Soper Creek, they focus on helping wounded or orphaned animals heal and find a new home in the wild.
Our Skedaddle Durham team is proud to partner with Soper Creek by starting an employee of the month program where we sponsor a baby animal by providing rehab donations to ensure the proper care.
Protecting Wildlife- How You can Contribute
It is important to protect wildlife as it allows for the rest of nature to maintain balance. The term wildlife does not confine itself to mean animals only but, all undomesticated living things. Each element of the group has a particular role to play in the general preservation of all life.
It is best that a homeowner leaves an animal be (even if it appears injured or alone) as their mother or family is usually close by. If you do see an animal sick or wounded in the Durham area please do not approach the animal. Contact Soper Creeks call centre or visit the Ontario Wildlife Rescue website.
Whitby Parks Offering the Wonderful Sights and Sound of Nature
If you want to see wildlife in action without endangering them there are great conservation parks and recreational parks in Whitby (such as Lynde Shores Conservation Area, Ash Park, Bradley Park, Chipperfield Park, and Lady May Park) that facilitate this. As you explore these gems though, do remember to be careful in how you interact with the wildlife you see there.
You can also help to protect animals near your own home with the help of humane wildlife prevention strategies. Contact Skedaddle to learn more.
