Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Projects

Wildlife rehabilitators can receive from between 60 to over 6000 wild animals each year.


The rescue, treatment and rehabilitation of wild animal casualties is increasing. There is no doubt that people have always felt compassion for wounded and sick animals and perhaps a reason why rehabilitation is gaining interest is the awareness of human induced threats to the natural world and the development of veterinary medicine to the stage at which treating a wild animal can be effective.

Wildlife rescue and rehabilitation is a demanding and highly skilled role. Rehabilitators want to ensure that a wild animal receives the best care and treatment to ensure that it will be released back to the wild in the same condition it was prior to admission. This can take between weeks to many months. Daily running costs into hundreds, even thousands of pounds is common and many wildlife rehabilitators work tirelessly to care for wildlife.

Your generosity makes that difference for wildlife in care. Your generosity enables us to deliver key messages, reaching hundreds of people each year, about the vital work of wildlife carers. 

What are the projects?

Your support enables us to provide vital resources and veterinary equipment so that wildlife in care is given the best possible chance of survival and release back to the wild. We provide education resources, create wildlife enclosures, new habitats and offer advice for wildlife carers, no matter how big or small, across the UK. 

Our current project is:


Selby Hedgehog Haven

Selby Hedgehog Haven, based in Selby Yorkshire, is a non-profit organisation run by a passionate hedgehog lover, Victoria Brown, and her volunteers.

Victoria and her team rescue, rehabilitate and release, back to the wild, over a hundred of our native European Hedgehog in the Selby and surrounding areas of North Yorkshire.

The European Hedgehog is currently in severe decline across the UK with a third lost since the millennium. Victoria’s work is ensuring hedgehogs remain a part of the British countryside.

WildAid is supporting Victoria's tremendous work by fundraising for a new incubator and a nebulisor for her hospital. These are essential pieces of hospital equipment which prove vital for the survival of juvenile hedgehogs. 

PLEASE DONATE generously here or send us a message if you prefer to donate another way i.e.cheque. Thank you
