Each year KNC receives hundreds of phone calls from concerned individuals who’ve encountered wildlife they believe to be injured, abandoned, or behaving strangely. We’re happy to provide callers with accurate information and up-to-date resources that address their individual situation. Our priority is to help the caller determine what action, if any, is needed.
Understandably, our first impulse may be to act in a noble way on the creature’s behalf. Yet often, we help callers see that the animal’s actions are normal and that they should leave it as they’ve found it; many baby animals, for example, spend most of their day alone. In cases where intervention may be needed, KNC can, by phone, guide callers to the next steps and/or link them to those with expertise for that specific animal and situation.
