Ian Orlikoff, owner and lead arborist of Signature Tree Care in Naples, Florida, returns 55 baby Brazilian free-tailed bats to their nest tree after the frond they were nesting in fell to the ground during a storm.

A woman called from a business in Naples Park to report that a large group of baby bats were clinging to a palm frond that had fallen during a heavy thunder storm the previous night. Hospital staff instructed the woman not to handle any of the babies and to keep the area clear from pedestrians while we collected the equipment needed to rescue the baby bats.

Two staff members from Conservancy Of Southwest Florida von Arx Wildlife Hospital were dispatched to retrieve the bats. Each bat was examined as they were picked up and placed in secure transport containers. Two bats had died in the fall; another two were severely injured and euthanized when we returned to the hospital. The remaining 55 bats were re-nested later that evening with help from Ian Orlikoff, owner of Signature Tree Care, LLC. 6/12/14

Squirrel Rescue

As quoted from the blog of Conservancy of Southwest Florida: Baby squirrels rescued and rehydrated

A fall from the nest:  One grey squirrel fell from its nest just before dark. The baby had been vocalizing from the nest prior to falling. Once admitted, it was obvious the squirrel was orphaned; he was thin, dehydrated and ravenous.

The homeowner who rescued the squirrel saw another baby, but the nest was too high in the tree for her to retrieve it. The following day, hospital staff called the owner of Signature Tree Care and Eco Logic Land Care to see if they could help.

Typically, Signature Tree Care helps with re-nesting projects; this was the first time we needed to rescue orphaned babies stranded in the nest. When Walter Morales, operations manager at Signature Tree Care arrived, the second baby had fallen to the ground but he still climbed the large oak tree to make sure no other babies were in the nest.

Staff at von Arx rehydrated the squirrels with electrolytes before offering them formula. After several days, they were receiving full-strength milk replacement formula and now they are thriving. Pictures: Conservancy of Southwest Florida
