Wildlife rehabilitators are true heroes. The work they do on behalf of our wildlife is endless, and they do it on their own time and expense. Many people don't know that there really is no system in place to help injured wildlife, other than these licensed individual volunteers. And so much of what they do is clean up the damage that humans do. I once called a wildlife rehabber to help an opossum that was probably poisoned, either by someone trying to poison raccoons or by lawn chemicals, or something. The wildlife rehabbers were there in a flash to help. It took an entire day of their time. God bless them.
