Video: Rehabilitating Injured Wildlife In Houston

Birds, squirrels and more are sustaining more injuries as a result of the city’s growth.

As Houston grows, the city’s wildlife population has fewer places to live than ever before. As a result, more wild animals are getting injured due to human interaction.

However, those animals have an ally in the Wildlife Center of Texas — an organization that rehabilitates injured wildlife and educates the public on the importance of coexisting with the creatures around us.
