Making a Difference
WildAid’s mission is to support wildlife rescue and rehabilitation across the UK. We do this by working with wildlife rescue organisations and rehabilitators, identifying what support they need and working with them to deliver the best care for wildlife:
WildAid supports rehabilitators to procure resources to ensure wildlife receives the best care possible.
We help to design and create enriching wildlife habitat and enclosures.
Understanding what is happening to our native wildlife is vital so we provide assistance with research and monitoring to determine what support is needed to succesfully release wildlife back to the wild.
We deliver pioneering education workshops for schools and communities. The UK is one of the most nature-deprived countries in the world and so an aim is to inspire young people to become informed, responsible citizens through education about the natural world. 100% OF OUR WILDLIFE ACTIVITIES HAVE BEEN DELIVERED TO YOUNG PEOPLE WHO WOULD NOT NORMALLY HAVE THE CHANCE TO CONNECT WITH NATURE.
We provide opportunities where young people appreciate wildlife and wild places and who can benefit from the health, wealth and prosperity they provide.
With our unique partnerships and focus on native wildlife we deliver powerful and informative activities for our clients, connecting thousands of people with the natural world each year.
WildAid advocates the welfare of wildlife beyond the UK. Through our welfare campiagns we raise awareness of the plight of wildlife exploited through trade and crime.
What We Do
There are more than 60 registered wildlife rehabilitators across the UK – and no doubt many other individuals and groups who feel compassion for wounded, sick or orphaned animals.
It is not unusual for rehabilitators to receive between 60 and 6,000 injured, displaced and orphaned wildlife each year. To effectively treat and care for wildlife daily running costs can run into many hundreds of pounds each day.
WildAid works with such organisations to ensure that their care and treatment for wildlife continues. We understand the level of commitment and resources required to make a difference.
Our Lancashire base serves as our headquarters for delivering welfare projects and community activities. Our team identifies wildlife welfare projects, to support across the UK. and we deliver educational activities, and events for schools, colleges and universities, providing research reports for distribution to schools, wildlife groups and government agencies. We aim to provide a chance for individuals and groups, who may not have access to nature, an opportunity to build positive opinions about the natural world.
We support regional environmental agencies and advocate welfare for native wildlife as well as individuals wishing to volunteer for our concerns. If you’re an organisation or group and interested in our work why not choose us to deliver a presentation or guided activity for you.
WildAid supports an education service delivered from the U.K’s busiest wildlife centre; RSPCA Stapeley Grange in Cheshire. The centre receives over 6000 wildlife admissions each year and we expereince a very real impression of how wildlife is impacted in the UK.
WildAid promotes a welfare directory where you can identify an animal rescue centre which will capably attend to wildlife casualties as well as offering advice.
"It's all about encouraging people to participate and learn about the natural world through hands on discovery."
Established over 25 years ago, as a wildlife rescue and rehabilitation centre, WildAid has been making a difference for wildlife welfare throughout the UK ever since.
The projects run by WildAid depend upon the generosity and kindness of our supporters.Donate
