From a wildlife rehabilitator who cared for a hawk when its wing was broken to the team of workers who rescued hundreds of pelicans covered in thick, sticky oil after an oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, wildlife rehabilitators provide emergency care when animals need help the most.

In this gripping book, children will meet the brave rehabilitators who share a selfless dedication to helping orphaned, sick, or injured wildlife—including the story of a woman who took care of more than 300 animals in her own backyard! Young readers will learn how these everyday heroes use their quick thinking and expert emergency skills to come to the aid of animals at a moment’s notice. In addition, readers will get an inside look at how wildlife rehabilitators prepare for their job so that they are always ready in a crisis. Large, full-color photos and dramatic real-life stories will keep kids turning the pages to learn more.
