Meet baby Hope—a bison calf recently born on the Eastern Shoshone Tribe’s Wind River Reservation in Wyoming. This small baby represents big goals for the future of her herd.

Once roaming the plains by the millions, wild buffalo in the United States dwindled to just a few hundred by the end of the 19th century. After years of dedication with our partners from the Eastern Shoshone Tribe, we have reintroduced buffalo to their native lands. Baby Hope is just one of several calves born this year to the herd. The Eastern Shoshone invited our wildlife members to name this young bison—Hope emerged as the winning name out of over 10,000 submissions.

Pops of color: Framed by the glow of street lights along Kuwait City’s bustling Persian Gulf shore, two Arabian red fox kits explore the night just outside their den. Photographer Mohammad Murad observed and photographed the kits and their family every day for over two months. This image won him a first place prize in our 2018 photo contest.

#WheresRickWednesday – Where’s Ranger Rick today? He's guarding a nest of baby robins! These babies will leave the nest about two weeks after hatching and will stay close to their parents until they can fly well enough to venture off on their own!
Baby birds are frequently encountered on the ground in spring. If the baby bird is featherless or covered in fluffy down, it is called a “nestling” and should be returned to the nest if possible. Listen and look for the parents. This can give you a good indication as to where their nest is located and where you can safely place the nestling. (Don’t be alarmed if the parents raise a fuss and dive-bomb you; they are just looking after their young!) Touching a nestling will not make the parents reject it.

If the baby bird is fully feathered, it’s called a “fledgling” and it is normal for it to be out of the nest. Fledglings spend several days on the ground hiding in the vegetation until they can fully fly. While this is a dangerous time for young birds, their parents continue to feed and protect them, and your intervention is not necessary. In fact, by taking fledglings out of the wild you decrease their chances of survival. However, if you see a fledgling in the street or otherwise in harm’s way, try to move it into dense vegetation close to where you discovered it so the parents can look after it.

Check out the link below to learn more about what to do if you or your family encounters baby wildlife while enjoying the outdoors. (clickable link in bio)

Re-post via @happyhivehomeschool -
The kids LOVE finding their Ranger Rick Jr. Magazines in the mail box and diving into them. We read them for story time and the kids learn so much just from these pages. There are a lot of interesting animals facts, activities, and comic book stories inside. I enjoy them just as much as they do and they are easy to read so my little readers stay engaged and interested. My grandmother gifted us the subscription and I couldn't be more thankful!
