Baby beaver rescue in Colorado!

🐾We admitted a rather unusual patient today – a baby North American Beaver! While we do occasionally see beavers at our Center, this is by far one of the youngest we have admitted! 💚Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers discovered this kit just south of Denver alone, dehydrated, and near a deceased sibling. They trekked the tyke to our facility so our licensed rehabilitation team could assess it and provide a bit of TLC to the orphan. 🐾Once through the vital quarantine process, he’ll be immediately transferred to our partner Pauline S. Schneegas Wildlife Foundation. Young beavers can be lonely when on their own, and we’re fortunate to be able to move him to Schneegas where he can thrive alongside other young beavers, learning vital skills in their large specialized enclosure before returning to the wild once more. 💚For now, our Animal Care Team has settled him into one of Greenwood’s cozy enclosures, complete with a stuffed companion, some leafy branches to munch, and daily swim time on his own personal beach. We hope this little bucked-tooth buckaroo has a comfy stay with us before he joins his new friends in Silt.

@ai6yr good lord that is too much cute. Also, I want to visit the Beaver Dojo, and if that’s not what they call it I will demand they change it.

Joey! 🦘

I got a chance to have a baby kangaroo on my lap for the first time! 😍

He felt all angular legs & tail pushing round inside his rescue pouch.

My son does wildlife rescue. This poor sweetie lost his mother – she was hit by a car. 😢 He goes to a registered foster home now, & is big enough to do fine. 🤞 🤞 🤞

Joey snuggled into his "pouch." Only his face is visible. The pouch is a bag made of snuggly cloth, with an elasticized opening. It's turquoise, with a white pattern.

Last year, we had Mourning doves, this year, Robins 😊

I was scything our field, came around an oak tree and saw a mother deer roust her baby from their hiding spot. They slowly made their way across the field with the little one hopping all around mom :) #Petaluma #SonomaCounty #Wildlife

Same destruction, new name

"Fire management in Victoria amounts to de facto native logging industry, conservationists say. On Thursday conservationists and the Victorian National Parks Association expressed shock after discovering a dead greater glider in an area where trees had been felled by FFMV."

"Logging in Victoria’s native forests ended at the beginning of this year but Prof David Lindenmayer, a forest ecologist at Australian National University, said: “There’s a de facto logging industry now emerging under the guise of fire suppression.“To me, when you cut down big trees and put them on a truck and take them to a sawmill … that is logging.”"

“One part of the same government department is trying to work out how to stop the greater glider going extinct while another is pushing it to extinction,” he said. There are some deep systemic problems here.”

OH heard a lot of grunting outside our kitchen window in the middle of the night. On looking to see, turns out it was two hedgehogs "very much in love" 😄💕

Seems there might be a family of hedgehogs soon 🤗

Not sure its the same pair but a pair built their nest in this exact same location last yr. Its on some rock fill along the Iowa River & right next to the Iowa River Trail in Coralville, Iowa. Was fortunate to get a good view of the nest when she chose to stand up & turn her eggs as well as scrounge the surrounding rocks for something to eat. Unfortunately, in the city it is not usual to see wildlife incorporate human detritus in their nests 🙁.
