Providing temporary care for squirrels
Young squirrels usually do not have the ability to get food. A wildlife rehabilitator may help such animals by providing the care they need. They usually feed and warm the young animals until they are old enough to be released into the wild. It is advisable to give up squirrels to a professional rehabilitator as it will have a greater chance of survival under their experienced hands.
Protection from harm
A wildlife rehabilitator may rescue a squirrel that is at risk of being killed by lurking predators. This plays a role in the conservation of a specific species that is facing the possibility of extinction such as the red squirrel species. Harm may also be in the form of diseases that are life threatening such as pox virus.
Treating injured squirrels
A squirrel may be injured during movement or in the aftermath of an attack. Wildlife rehabilitators can help the injured squirrels by cleaning wounds and giving antibiotics or performing life saving operations to remove the threat of death.
Feeding and raising orphaned squirrels
Orphaned squirrels need care. Feeding and raising them should be done by professionals who can do the job with dedication and diligence. Orphaned squirrels are released when they are grown and hardy enough to survive in the wilderness. The rehabilitator knows the best way to raise them so that they can survive in the wilderness.
