Wildlife Coalition in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas.
DFW Wildlife Coalition
Every year in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, thousands of birds, squirrels, opossums, cottontail rabbits, beavers, raccoons and other native wild animals are unnecessarily orphaned, injured or euthanized.
A new hotline launched earlier this year by the DFW Wildlife Coalition aims to reduce that number significantly. The hotline is staffed daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. by trained volunteers, including Texas Master Naturalists.
For callers who have found a juvenile animal, the volunteers provide information on how to re-unite the baby with its parents if possible. In the case of sick, injured or orphaned animals, hotline volunteers connect callers with licensed wildlife rehabilitators.
For callers having problems with wildlife on their property, the volunteers provide information on effective, humane solutions. The hotline is an excellent source of information on how to deter wildlife from destroying your landscaping or how to gently evict them if they've moved into your attic.
Hotline volunteers discourage callers from trapping and relocating wildlife.
Animals that are captured in attics and under decks often are lactating females. A few days after the adult animal is trapped and relocated,
homeowners frequently are dismayed to hear the cries of starving babies.

Using powerful imagery, thought-provoking analyses, and a compelling narrative, Dr. Joy says how, although unjust ideologies (racism, sexism, ableism, carnism, etc.) all are unique, the mentality that enables such interlocking systems is strikingly similar. When unnoticed, these ideologies can cause us to act against our core values, our own interests, and the interests of others. Free
