Every year, our members encounter birds and other wildlife in need of assistance and often aren’t  sure how to handle the situation.
We are fortunate to have experts at the Vermont Institute of Natural  Science (VINS) who can assist. 
If you come across a bird that is injured or in distress, VINS recommends you contact the Fish and Game Warden,  Sgt. Jeff Whipple at 802-234-9933 (police dispatch)/802-535-5220(c)  or  VINS at 802-359-5001 x 212. They will walk you through the best way to handle the situation.
