We want to hear from you! WDFW is seeking public feedback on ways to improve outcomes for Washington fish, wildlife, and people. Ten minutes is all it takes to share your perspective.
Living WDFW’s values call us to act with integrity and respect to all people.
If you discover a baby bird on the ground or a deer fawn alone in the forest, the desire to help is natural. Learn what to do if you encounter a wild animal that appears to be orphaned or injured, and whether it's best to leave it alone, or to contact a licensed wildlife rehabilitator.
