Hurricane Nicholas has resulted in many baby animals being blown out of their nests. On September 14,  Houston SPCA’s Wildlife Center of Texas had a record high of 111 animals brought in.

It is very common for baby animals to be the most in need after a hurricane. They are often separated from their mother and left to weather the storm in their nest. It may seem like a safe place for the animal, but strong winds can blow the nest away, or cause the whole tree to fall. Baby birds and squirrels are some of the most common animals that are in need of rescuing after a storm, as they are particularly vulnerable in high trees.

The baby animals at the SPCA Wildlife Center will be taken care of until they recover or are old enough to be released. As with any rescue program, the goal is to always release the animals back into the wild, where they can carry on with their natural lives.
