I found a injured or sick wildlife – what should I do?

A:


Please contact the closest wildlife rehabilitation center near you. To find a list of rehabilitators, please go to this site:http://www.dec.ny.gov/cfmx/extapps/sls_searches/index.cfm?p=live_rehab.  Remember: if you find a baby deer in the bushes or alone, it may not be sick or injured; sometimes, a mother deer will leave her baby for a while and come back. If you see that the baby deer is there for a few hours or a few days, please contact a wildlife rehabilitator.

Why did Morgan Duke Conservation Society founder James name the organization Morgan Duke?

A:

James named the organization after his two dogs, who were both boxers. Morgan loved the beach and he loved playing in the water – he always loved to be outside. In 2008, Morgan died from bladder cancer and that same year James’ family got a boxer puppy and named it Duke. Duke also loved the beach and ocean and loved spending time outside and hiking. Duke died in 2015 from stroke/seizure.
