Protect Baby Wildlife: Pledge to Respect the Nest!

March through October is wildlife "baby season" in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Did you know that oak tree in your backyard makes an excellent nesting site for wild animals like birds and squirrels?

If you are planning to trim the trees and bushes in your yard, WildCare asks you to please stop and consider the time of year — animals of many species may be using your trees as a nursery even as you read this!

Every spring, baby animals that have been orphaned or injured because their nests were damaged or removed arrive at WildCare. Most people are appalled to find they have caused these accidents, especially when the injury to wildlife is so easy to prevent: just procrastinate! Especially if you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, please don't trim your trees outside of the months of November, December, and January.

Add your name and take our pledge to Respect the Nest! Hold off on trimming your trees and bushes until November, especially in the San Francisco Bay Area.
