Like humans, animals can get sick or hurt. People see doctors. Pets have veterinarians. What happens to wild animals when they are injured, become ill, or are orphaned? Often, wildlife rehabilitators are called to their rescue. This photographic journal takes readers “behind the scenes” at four different wildlife rehabilitation centers. Fall in love with these animals as they are nursed back to health and released back to the wild when possible. This is the first of a photographic series introducing the different ways and the many people who care for a wide variety of animals.
Shown with actual photographic images, Animal Helpers: Wildlife Rehabilitators gives children insight on the tasks required of wildlife rehabilitators. It is a beautiful book that will help young readers learn about this special job occupation. In the "Creative Minds" section in the back of the book is a compare and contrast of Rehabilitators and Veterinarians, help on determining if an animal is orphaned or just left alone, and true or false questions on injured animals.
Animal Helpers: Wildlife Rehabilitators is a Fall 2012 release from Sylvan Dell Publishing.
