Wildlife Emergencies

1. Does the animal need help?

For information on how to determine if an animal needs your help please visit the Internatonal Wildlife Rehabilitation Council.

Baby bird? Check out the flowchart.

We do not recommend attempting to handle any injured wildlife – especially birds of prey, lynx, and foxes.

2. Contact CO Services

If you have a wildlife emergency please contact Conservation Officer Services at the Yukon Department of Environment at 1-800-661-0525.

CO Services and YG’s Animal Health Unit will respond and evaluate an appropriate course of action (which may include bringing it to the YWP). While the YWP can accept injured wildlife, we do not have a field response team to conduct rescues.

3. Still unsure?

Reach out to our Veterinarian, Dr. Maria Hallock. Please leave a message as our staff are often out on rounds.

If it is an evening or weekend and you cannot reach CO Services, please call Randy Hallock.
