"Leave Young Wildlife Alone"

Should you encounter a young fawn or hatchling bird in your backyard or on your next adventure, wildlife biologists with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation say it is best to leave these newborns alone.

Many times, these young animals only appear to be alone; an adult is typically nearby and will return when your perceived threat passes. Other times, spring storms blow nestling birds and squirrels from nests. While these animals may seem to be distressed, an adult animal will often find and care for them. "As difficult as it can be, sometimes the best help we can offer young wildlife is to leave them alone and let nature run its course," said Melynda Hickman, wildlife diversity biologist with the Wildlife Department.

While leaving these young animals alone is the best course of action, wildlife rehabilitators across the state will take in injured wildlife. To find a rehabilitator in your county and a list of the species they accept, please see the list below.
