A Unique Way to Support Wildlife Rehabs in Pennsylvania

(IssueWire via Comtex)

Wayne, Pennsylvania Oct 14, 2021 (Issuewire.com) - Would you know what to do if you found a robin with a broken wing? An abandoned nest of baby squirrels or an injured possum? Wildlife rescue and rehabilitators throughout the Keystone State are constantly on-call for such emergencies. Yet they do it on shoestring budgets with no governmental assistance. Your purchase of the annual Pennsylvania Wildlife Samaritans calendar can help.

100% of the proceeds go to the 12 featured PA wildlife rehabs.

The calendar will be available by November 15th. Sign up for calendar updates.

2022 Pennsylvania Wildlife Samaritans calendar

Started in 2020, the annual Pennsylvania Wildlife Samaritans calendar is a vibrant, 12-month calendar featuring a different PA wildlife rehab each month with colorful photos and useful tips and information about wildlife encounters. Each wildlife rehab's logo, address, and contact information are also highlighted on their respective pages so Pennsylvania wildlife enthusiasts can readily refer to a wildlife rehab in their neck of the woods--or wherever they may travel--to easily contact a professional wildlife rehabber if needed.

"Wildlife rehabilitation is one of the hardest jobs a person can commit to, and the support of our community helps us help our wildlife." - Tracie A Young, director/founder/rehabilitator, Raven Ridge Wildlife Center

"The calendar raises awareness of some of the centers that are in Pennsylvania and it's always interesting seeing the new animals every year," says Tracie A. Young, director/founder/rehabilitator at Raven Ridge Wildlife Center in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Raven Ridge is one of the 12 rehabs that is featured in the 2022 calendar. "Wildlife rehabilitation is one of the hardest jobs a person can commit to, and the support of our community helps us help our wildlife."

The importance of wildlife rehab in Pennsylvania

Countless wild animals in Pennsylvania are injured or maimed every year by vehicles on roads, or by other human activity such as new building construction, and they're also at the effect of habitat loss or damage, predation, hunting, poisoning, and myriad challenges to wildlife at all stages from infancy to adulthood.

Wildlife rehabilitators in Pennsylvania work to nurture, heal, medicate, rehabilitate, and when all goes as planned--release back into the wild those animals that can be saved. Their almost-entirely volunteer work is intense and under-rewarded, financially and otherwise. Their only support is private contributions with no government funding. Yet their financial costs are considerable, for food, medications, housing, and daily care of animals.

How wildlife rehabilitators help Pennsylvania's endangered animals

Did you know: More than a dozen birds, including the short-eared owl and two types of heron, four bat species, the Northern Flying Squirrel and the Least Shrew, are on the endangered species list in Pennsylvania? Wildlife rehabbers play an important role in the protection and rehabilitation of injured endangered animals.
