As Spring progresses, our babies grow bigger and their needs for care change.

A baby squirrel who once needed to be bottle fed and snuggled into a nursery box, will grow into a rambunctious teenager who needs to climb and jump and learn how to not fall in a safe place before she can be released back into the wild. With this in mind, we built a new enclosure for the little baby Eastern Gray tree squirrels we raised from eyes-closed infants earlier this year.

Thanks to Whole Foods for produce donations and Berkeley Bowl West for help finding nuts so these kids could transition to solids and off formula.

These beautiful young squirrels are the same ones we received, eyes closed, back in March! My how they grow…
