EASTERN SIERRA WILDLIFE CARE wrote -
Our Eastern Sierra community lives in close proximity to a wide variety of wild species in an environment that varies from the deserts of Death Valley to the heights of Mount Whitney. Eastern Sierra Wildlife Care, the only wildlife rehabilitation facility in the area, provides care for over 400 injured or orphaned wild birds, mammals and reptiles.
Our Living in Harmony with Wildlife program seeks to teach young and old about their wild neighbors and minimize negative conflicts between humans and wild animals. We provide education programs for the school and community, address issues such as fishing line, lead poisoning and electrocution. We counsel individuals who seek help with "nuisance" wildlife or who may want to attract and enjoy wildlife in their yards and ponds. Our fundraising goal is to further develop and expand this program.
