Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Millions of North Americans — in suburbs, rural areas, even cities — share habitat with common wild animals. Most of us enjoy their presence, but problems may arise when raccoons raid the garbage cans, deer "prune" the shrubbery, or rabbits nibble garden veggies. How do you deal humanely with such situations? And how can you help injured wildlife around your home? Living with Wildlife identifies and describes more than 100 species, explains how wildlife-human interactions can lead to conflicts, and offers proven advice for how to resolve them. Created by the California Center for Wildlife, leaders in wildlife rehabilitation and education, this practical handbook contains: <BR>-- A concise history of wildlife conservation.<BR>-- Chapters on making your outside environment hospitable to wild creatures and your home secure from their intrusions, and on caring for wildlife in distress.<BR>-- A comprehensive Reference Guide with identifying information and useful background on the animals' needs and habits.<BR>-- Common and unusual wildlife problems, and the most humane solutions.<BR>-- Appendices listing government agencies, private wildlife centers, and other information resources. <BR>Underlying the practical wisdom in this guide is the Center's philosophy that wild creatures rightfully share our living space, and thereby enrich our lives.

Synopsis:

Based on years of practical experience and research, and informed by the California Center for Wildlife's commitment to humane treatment of animals, Living with Wildlife traces the evolution of attitudes toward wildlife and provides sensible guidelines for co-existing with animals encountered around the home and in wild areas. It is both a comprehensive reference to common North American wildlife and a guide to resolving - in the most humane ways possible - common conflicts that arise from human-wildlife contact. Included are invaluable tips on what to do when:

You head up to the attic to investigate strange noises, and find that a family of raccoons has taken up residence there

Your prized rosebush is suffering from nightly "pruning" by deer

Your child rushes into the house holding a fledgling bird found on the lawn after it apparently fell from its nest

You find, upon returning from a day hike while camping in bear country, that your food supplies have been raided and are scattered all over the campsite

Throughout, the book encourages humans to share their habitat and suggests ways to make residential environments more hospitable to wildlife.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [324]-328) and index.
