Animal rescue

What do you do if you find an injured animal in the wild? If it’s a bird or a seal, there may be hope for a rescue. On the next Outdoor Explorer, we’ll be traveling to the Alaska SeaLife Center, where marine mammals and birds are nursed back to health, and Bird TLC, a center for injured avians here in Anchorage. Besides learning how wild animals get care and what happens to them afterward, we’ll find out what you should do, or should not do, when you find them.
