If you find a sick, injured, orphaned or displaced native animal or bird, arrange first aid quickly.

Swift action may well save the animal’s life, so phone immediately. Much effort will be put into treating and nursing the bird or animal back to full health and, eventually, the release of the animal back into its natural habitat.
