Humane Handling Policy
We believe the animals we raise are every bit as important as the wildlife they are destined to feed. That’s why the Layne Laboratories Humane Handling Policy hangs on every door, in every hallway, and in every office in our facility.
While it might not sound yummy to humans, frozen mice and rats are the natural diet (and the perfect get well food) for wildlife, and can play a role in the survival of a sick, injured or orphaned wild animal.
The decline of Earth’s biodiversity and the need for sustainability practices mandates that we need a new approach to conservation that conveys to people of all walks of the crucial interdependence of plants, animals, people, and the environment.
Wildlife rehabilitation is the process of caring for injured, orphaned or sick wild animals and releasing them back to the wild when they are able to survive on their own. Humans are always a young wild animal’s last hope for survival, never its best hope. A young animal should only be removed from the wild after all avenues to reunite it with adult animals have been explored.
Zoos demonstrate leadership in animal care, science, education and sustainability; provide the highest quality animal care, advance research, and scientific knowledge in conserving wildlife. They teach and inspire people to protect wildlife, natural resources, and habitats.
