Wildlife Rescue 101
Daily Presentation

Wildlife Rescue 101

Have you ever come across wildlife in “distress” but did not know the appropriate steps to help? Florida is home to more than 700 terrestrial animals and other invertebrates, and they all depend on our sustainable recreational practices to survive. From posturing to vocalizations, animals communicate in a variety of ways and, at times, indicate their need for human assistance. Whether it is deterring visitors from feeding birds on the beach or detaching a pelican from fishing line in the mangroves, this program will cover wildlife rescue assessment as well as handling techniques!

How Climate Change Is Affecting Wildlife and What We Can Do to Help!
Daily Presentation

How Climate Change Is Affecting Wildlife and What We Can Do to Help!

According to World Wildlife Fund, our earth has lost 60% of our wild animals since 1970, and Audubon scientists used three decades of observations from the Audubon Christmas Bird Count and the North American Breeding Bird Survey to define the “climatic suitability” for each bird species. In this presentation, we will use these reports to discuss how climate fluctuations affect our beloved wildlife as well as ourselves, and how we can help mitigate these effects.
