Heat Stressed Wildlife Advice
On extremely hot days, wildlife will suffer dehydration and exhaustion. Placing shallow containers of water around your yard in shaded areas during a heat wave can really assist your local wildlife. Many native animals become extra vulnerable on hot days, so please keep your cats and dogs in doors to protect our wildlife, but also to keep your pets cool too. For more information on how to prevent and assist heat stressed wildlife, view our fact sheet here.
