We’ve all seen the videos; heard the heartwarming stories. An animal is in distress—it’s scared, alone, potentially injured, when all of a sudden a human or two comes along to help. Through the hard work of a few determined individuals, the creature is rescued, rehabilitated, and—all good things willing—soon released back into the wild. Sometimes these rescue operations are the work of dedicated professionals, vets, rangers and rescue services, but a lot of the time the helping hand comes from the general public, who just knew they needed to help out.
At Love Nature, we’ve written several articles on how everyday people, as well as experienced professionals, are helping save the animals of our planet. From five easy ways you can help animals by using modern technology, to our Make a Difference page and all the great work our charity partners are doing out in the field of conservation and animal rescue.
This weekend we’re highlighting the documentaries in our video streaming service that showcase the great and the good work nature-loving animal rescuers all over the world are undertaking. Have a watch, and be inspired by just how selfless a species we can be, when we put our minds to it.
