Wildlife staff who are taking care of baby foxes with the hopes of reintroducing them to the wild wear fox masks so, as the  Richmond Wildlife Center says ‘When they are first opening their eyes we don’t want the first thing they see in this world to be a human.”

“Her eyes haven’t opened yet, and her hearing isn’t developed yet, but we need to be ready for when she opens her eyes,” the center wrote in the social media post. “We want the first things she sees to be other foxes, even if we don’t have any actual adults or siblings to put her with,’ explained founder Melissa Stanley.

“The goal is to get them back out into the wild for a great chance at survival where they can recognize their species and continue to reproduce.”

So smart, right? Watch.
