Giving Nature a Helping Hand

We give mother nature a helping hand by raising and rehabilitating orphaned and injured wildlife so they may be released back to the wild. Our 27-acre site includes a state-of-the-art animal care facility as well as sophisticated enclosures, allowing us to care for–and successfully release–more injured and orphaned animals.

The soft-released Western Gray Squirrel that tends to lean to one side often hangs outside the LTWC office in search of some easy delicious food.

The main ideas of a soft release are that an animal is gradually introduced to a new environment but is given the opportunity to return to the safety of a cage for shelter, water, and food.

This raccoon was discovered in Markleeville, CA curled up in a ball and not acting normally. Thank you to the Wildlife Heros that arranged for it to be brought to LTWC. We are observing its behavior while also keeping it warm, curious, and engaged.

A group of bears is called a sleuth or a sloth.

Meet Valley, the newest member of our sleuth!

The California Department of Fish & Wildlife was called after repeated sightings of the bear dumpster diving in Grass Valley, CA. Bears are opportunistic eaters, and trash is too easy for them to forage. However, this puts them in contact with humans. Reminder always bear-proof your trash.

We now have 10 bear cubs, but rest assured, LTWC has room for more, but we hope we never reach our capacity.

Meet the LTWC Sloth:
1. Oak
2. Pine
3. Tule (m)
4. Sugar
5. Lake (m)
6. Izzy (m)
7. Bella
8. Mary
9. Posa (m)
10. Valley (m)

Five females & five males!

Please remember all of us on Giving Tuesday, as we eat a lot! And we mean A LOT!

The triplets, Lake (blue ear tag), Izzy (green ear tag), and Bella (right ear tag), have been growing up with just each other in their own enclosures. Will they end up meeting other bears at LTWC? Time will tell! Stay tuned!

The four Douglas Squirrel babies rescued by the tree cutters have moved into a large enclosure. They now only eat solid food, having been completely weaned off formula. Their outlook is very bright.

Thank you again to the #wildlifeheroes that saved their tree stump home and called LTWC!

Western Gray Squirrels feed mainly on pine seeds, green leaves, fungi, and mistletoe berries. The Sciurus Griseus is the largest tree squirrel in the Sierra Nevada and Central California range.

Coexisting

Living with Wildlife in the Tahoe Basin

The Lake Tahoe region is known as being one of the most beautiful places on earth, known for its stunning natural splendor. It’s no surprise that so many people chose to live and visit here! Wildlife are a fundamental part of our region’s environment, and knowing that we are sharing the area with so many beautiful animals is part of what makes this area so special for many of us. Yet, sharing our space with wildlife can bring its own set of challenges. Our bears are adept at getting human food from trash containers, woodpeckers can become house-peckers, and your dog may just come home with a face full of quills if she gets too close to a porcupine. Click below to learn more about the most common human-wildlife conflicts in our area and what you can do to avoid or address these issues yourself.
