Note :
There are a number of important factors to consider with regards to wildlife held in smaller temporary enclosures, such as the effect on body condition - whilst meeting the need for adequate acclimatization in a new area prior to release. Consideration needs to be taken of the size of animal, relative to the enclosure dimensions, activity requirements, age, and also of any particular species' needs, with regards to enclosure space, to ensure that the animal is in good condition at release, to enable the best chance of survival. Smaller enclosures may also make useful temporary nursery holdings, for the transition from indoors care, and also for initial transition from indoor hospital care facilities, for animals recuperating from injuries, where restricted space may be appropriate during healing.
