Please do not kidnap young animals!

June 2023

Unfortunately, there is no other way to call it. Because, that is literally often what uninformed "animal lovers" do out of "love of animals",
when they "save wild animals".
But from the beginning:
Many wild animals leave their cubs alone sometimes or keep their distance from them. Hares, fawns...
There are ravens whose courage is greater than their ability to fly, but these young do not enter the nest until the first successful flight attempt. However, the parents continue to feed the young bird. Then there are nest fledglings.
As with many ground nesting birds, a lapwing fledgling leaves its nest after only a few hours. But continue to be "cared for" (herded and fed) by their parents until they are fledged. The masters of camouflage sometimes stay very far from the nest, or right next to it. But just. You can hardly see the parents.
Baby squirrels. They are often seen alone. True, squirrels are nest feeders and are abandoned by the mother (single parent) after four months. But this is exactly the reason why the mother often leaves the nest out of sight for the purpose of gathering food.
There are land turtles and water turtles. A land turtle cannot swim, it sinks and drowns in agony in the water.
THAT, is all information, which one could suck nowadays (also on the way) "husch" over the search machine of the confidence from its mobile magic apparatus.
But, this is seldom the case and many simply think "to know better" although it is not even bad that one does not know all species-specific behavior by heart. Biologists do not study for nothing and sometimes specialize in one area.
In any case, this shows how important the SUST pillar "education and information" is.
Your support helps our professionals, like Oana here from the SUST-Orphan Wildlife @ Wildife Reabilitation Center "Luanas Dream" in Bucharest, Romania, to expand and disseminate their knowledge. "Knowledge" could have prevented many of these cases. All the animals you see in the picture were "kidnapped" healthy and then got sick because of wrong nutrition or were bitten by the family dog. Except for the tortoise, which was rescued from the water because luckily someone observed "rescuers" throwing it in.
Our SUST wild animal station in Bucharest is now in high season. Now is "baby season", the most difficult and challenging time of the year at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. Our team has their hands full with "real" and injured animal orphans and with telephone consultations for people who have found animals and are looking for advice.
Please do not kidnap young animals.
Don't "help" before you find out about the right help and tell everyone.
You can find many addresses where you can get information here:
or on your magic machine via the search engine you trust!
