Teton Wildlife Rehabilitation Center works to reduce adverse effects on wildlife in the greater teton valley ecosystem, particularly those induced by human activity. Going further, co-founders Lindsay & Renee work with volunteers and the public to provide education, advocate for safer wildlife interactions and corridors.
It has been awesome to be back in the field working with brilliant and talented folks like Lindsay, Renee & their volunteers. Today we joined in Pine Creek Pass to release 6 marmot pups that were orphaned only a week after birth. Because of their age, they had to be fed every 2 hours, with each feeding requiring about 1 hour. Volunteers were diligent and these little pups were quite plump at their release today. They loved their temporary home of a large piece of pipe so much extra measures were needed to get them out and into the world (our attempt at letting them do so on their own wasn’t so successful- they would explore and then return to their temp home). With a gentle push, these littles are out in the world for the first time!
