As the city expands vertically and horizontally, there is a rapid increase in urban wildlife getting disturbed, displaced and injured. Wildlife rescue and rehabilitation gives these smaller wildlife a second chance to live free in their natural habitat. Rehabilitation of birds involves a deep understanding of the species, its natural behavior, diet, habitat, it’s adaptation to artificial circumstances and finally its chances of survival after release. The talk will dwell deep into the impact of development on the bird life of urban areas and will cover rescue protocols, first aid, housing, diet, nutrition and release protocols.
