Reporting an Injured Animal

If you encounter an injured wild animal, such as a sea turtle, bird, raccoon, monkey, or mongoose, please do not approach it! Many of our wild species are protected and it is illegal to approach or handle them without proper permitting. Additionally, injured animals are often fearful and aggressive.

Instead, note their location in proximity to a recognizable landmark, take photos of the animal from a distance of 6 meters/20 feet, and call us at +1 (721) 544-4267 to report the injured animal. If after hours or on the weekend, please email at with those details.

Please note that we do not respond to incidents of domestic injured animals, including dogs, cats, goats, horses, or pigs. Check out our Contacts and Referrals page to find an organization that may help.
