IMLAY CITY — Have you or someone you know ever found an injured wild animal and wished you could help?
How about babies wandering around crying without their mother?
If you're interested in learning more about wildlife rehabilitation, don't miss the March 1st meeting of the Imlay Conversation Salon.
Licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator Holly Hadac will present information on wildlife rehabilitation at the Ruth Hughes Library beginning at 6:15 p.m.
Visitors will learn about DNR licensing and ongoing education requirements, which wild animals may work best at your home, how to set limits, what the associated costs are, and more.
Hadac will show how wildlife rehabilitating is not a hobby—it is a profession that is demanding.
"You will also learn how rewarding and challenging saving the life of a wild animal is," Hadac says. "The biggest reward is watching injured, sick, or orphaned wild animals regain their freedom."

She has been speaking at various venues to find people interested in rehabilitating wildlife. Hadac is also an assistant researcher with the Southeastern Michigan Coyote Research Project (semcrp.org), trapping, radio collaring, and tracking coyotes in Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb Counties.
