Injured Wildlife Rescue
Saving wildlife safely
At any moment you may be in the situation with a wild animal who needs help, needs moving or medical attention. So what do you do?
Each situation depends on you, the animal and the situation. External help is often a phone call away. Safety is Paramount!
This was an easy and mostly safe rescue. A freshly fledged Noisy Minor had fallen asleep on the road! (What???).
I stopped a car from running over it, but it was a slow local road with good visibility.
Owl Rescue: How NOT not to do it
Saving wildlife safely
WARNING cuteness overload: This was a successful rescue of a Morepork owl. He was seconds from being converted to road-pizza.
This rescue had a few Dangerous possibilities due to my conduct. Some risks are are unavoidable as dictated by the circumstances. See if you can note the possibilities where it could have gone wrong. Use all your senses (ie: try the Whispering State).
The Owl Rescue story
The Whispering State is remarkably useful in life. Animals feel it, hence all my animal videos. This cute chap was very lucky as s/he was in the middle of a major highway. Probably mere seconds from being run over. Hence my prompt dash as you can hear the traffic coming at 100Kph. Awareness of your environment is critical. Sensory awareness is part of the Learning State as it helps synesthesia (multiple neuron connections) which strengthens learning and long term memory. All basic learning skills schools never teach, or use with their students. The left brain, stressed school system is designed to help very few students succeed. Learning these critical learning skills then develop major life skills that develops a student into a fantastic resilient, self-reliant learner who can tackle study, employment, self-employment and the big issues in life. An owl does not belong in the middle of the highway.
Wildlife animal rescue can happen at any time. Approach them with care, respect and a Towel. Animal whispering skills are handy so I made a online course. The video shows the bird calm but probably concussed. The wing looked as if it may have been sprained, but no break was obvious. I picked the bird up with little resistance, folded in it’s wings an got us both off the highway as cars were approaching on this bend just at dawn. S/he was unable to fly. It seemed best to take it to a vet or somewhere where animal rescue could pick it up. So secured in a towel, we drove off. Being a wise old hooter it watched me for a while then S/he decided it wanted to drive, so I was lucky enough to be close to a petrol station. With cute owl in hand I went in. The lovely lady knew the local animal recue and explained they get every type of animal coming through the door. We secured the bird in a box for pickup and evaluation. This was a wonderful occurrence as this means the bird will be re-released back near it’s original residence. Relating to nature uses the same life & learning skills with a different approach: LearnWhispering.com is focused on teaching the life skills by relating to nature in a way that is safe and ethical. Being in nature is how we relax and rejuvenate. The Whispering State is the Learning state. The LearnWhispering 101 video course teaches these life skills and it weaves in the 9 pillar framework which is the structure of how we operate, learn and grow. For those that struggle with normal schooling this offers a fun and different way to learn these skills.
