When native wildlife in the North Bay runs afoul of humankind, it’s almost always the animal that comes out second best. That’s when Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue steps in.
Even after more than 25 years of doing this, there are still surprises, says Executive Director Doris Duncan, including two species that each appeared there for the first time earlier this year.
Although she has been caring for all kinds of native animals throughout the organization's 18 year history, Duncan says each one is different.
Whenever possible, the treated creatures are released back into the wild, as close as possible to where they came from.
