Rome, January 28 - More than 15,000 wounded birds
and animals were treated in LIPU-BirdLife rehabilitation centers
throughout Italy in 2012, the organization said on Monday.
Of the 15,300 animals admitted, 12,660 were birds (82%) and
the rest mammals such as foxes, hedgehogs, bats, deer and hares,
but also reptiles, including several species of turtles.
Many injuries and traumas are caused by cars, but also
accidental collisions involving buildings and wind turbines,
LIPU said.
"Our centers take in wild animals usually brought to us by
concerned individuals who find them injured. Our objective is to
try to return them to their natural habitat once they have
healed," LIPU President Fulvio Mamone Capria said.
Capria said that LIPU will be looking toward the new
government for "recognition and funding for recovery centers"
necessary for the treatment of wildlife in distress.
