Do you care if wild animals needlessly suffer and die during wintertime? If so, read on to learn how you can help.

 

Nature gave animals various adaptations such as fur to help them survive during cold weather. In spite of this, animals can and do die from inclement weather. Even if they survive, they may be very uncomfortable for weeks or months in a row. Read more about the limitations of fur as an insulator

 

Some animals create their own shelter, such as by burrowing into the ground. Many other animals will utilize a shelter if it is available, but they may not have the ability or resources to construct a shelter. We can help those animals; there are billions of them.

 

In addition to helping keep wild animals warm and dry, shelters provide protection from larger predators.

 

On the next page, you will see examples of how wild animals sought manmade shelter.
