"While Flight or Fight is an adventure story with fine Carl Hiaasen eco—warrior qualities, it is also informative to the reader, opening one's eyes to the many facets involved in wildlife rehabilitation. The final pages of the book include resources on wildlife rehabilitation centres and associations, as well as a quick guide on what to do if you fin and injured, orphaned, or oiled animal, and how to make your own wildlife rescue kit."
