Living with Desert Wildlife: How to Help Native Species

with Emma Baldwin,Primary Wildlife Rehab Keeper at The Living Desert

Wildlife rehabilitation is the treatment and care of injured, orphaned, or sick wild animals so that they can be released back to the wild. 

Everybody has found a baby bird that could not quite fly or the little bunny that for sure shouldn’t be out on its own, the lizard that has lost its tail, or the tortoise that was just too small. In this lecture, Emma Baldwin, Primary Wildlife Rehab Keeper at The Living Desert, will talk about some of the problems wildlife is facing and what everyone of us can do to prevent some of the more common wildlife issues. She will also introduce the do’s and don’ts of assisting a wild animal in need.

Emma Baldwin is the Primary Wildlife Rehab Keeper at The Living Desert for their Native Wildlife Conservation Program. She has worked at The Living Desert for 4 years.  She has a bachelor’s degree in biology also works as a zookeeper in the North American section of The Living Desert.
