Rehabilitating Wildlife On Roosevelt Island
In young birds wrapping the wing and binding it against the bird’s flank for a few days along with feeding the bird a more appropriate natural diet, can reverse the damage.
A diet that provides sufficient amounts of vitamin D (the “sunshine” vitamin), vitamin E and manganese may also be indicated.

Wildlife rehabilitation is in no way an attempt to turn wild animals into pets. Injured wild animals are held in captivity only until they will be able to return to their independent life in the wild. Fear of humans is a necessary element for them and every effort is made to minimize human contact to prevent the domesticating/taming of the animals in need of rehabilitation. Wildlife rehabilitation is a complex and time-consuming process.
