How To Make A Surrogate Nest

  1. Find a container such as a basket or box (not plastic as it can fill with water or fluids).
  2. Fill the box with leaves, paper towels, or a soft, clean cloth.
  3. Place the nest in the tree or bush closest to where the animal was found, out of the sun and rain, as high up as you can manage.
  4. Place the animal in the nest and leave the area.

The mother will hear the distress calls and return to the baby(ies) to care for them or move them to a safer place!
