Helping Wildlife

As human life encroaches more and more upon wildlife environments and habitats, it is inevitable that encounters with our wild neighbors increase. WCHS strongly believes that we need to be responsible stewards of our environment, and the animals and birds we share it with. In many cases, it is preferable to leave wildlife alone…so often, it is our unintentional interference that causes problems for wildlife.

If you are having a problem with a wild animal, please check the websites below. Many of these sites will be able to answer your questions. If you do need further assistance, please call WCHS at 262-677-4388.
