Editorial Reviews


“Wildlife Search and Rescue: A Guide for First Responders is a compact and practical introduction to the considerations and practicalities of wildlife capture . . . I would suggest this text as a companion to the BSAVA Wildlife Manual which provides complementary and more in-depth information on a number of British wildlife species.” (Animal Welfare, 1 November 2012)

“It will also prove useful for students looking at applied ecology scenarios. And, even for a plant ecologist like me, it is a very good, fascinating read.” (British Ecological Society Bulletin, 1 August 2012)

From the Inside Flap

Rescuing wild animals in distress requires a unique set of skills, very different from those used in handling domestic animals. The equipment, degree of handling, the type of caging and level of care a wild animal receives can mean the difference between life and death. Wildlife Search and Rescue is a comprehensive guide on ‘best practices’ and suggested standards for response to sick, injured and orphaned wildlife. This valuable resource covers the fundamentals of wildlife rescue, from ‘phone to field’, including safe and successful capture strategies, handling and restraint techniques and initial aid. Wildlife Search and Rescue is a must-have for anyone interested in knowing what to do when they are face to face with a wild animal in need, or for anyone involved in animal rescue. While the book focuses on wildlife native to North America, much of the information and many of the techniques are applicable to other species, including domestic dogs and cats.
