Spotting a baby animal by himself doesn't necessarily mean he's an orphan. Many wildlife parents leave their young alone during the day, sometimes for long periods. If the babies are still dependent, the mother is usually nearby, discreetly keep an eye on them.

You'd be surprised - even small young animals are often independent enough to fend for themselves. Unless they appear injured or in distress, there may be no need to rescue them.
