Baby Spring Boom

As wildlife rescue centres take in more wildlife admissions each day it is important to remember that not all young animals need rescuing as some would be better off being left where they are. Every year wildlife centres are inundated with young animals after people, with the best of intentions, believe them to be orphaned or abandoned and bring them in for welfare care.  

Our advice is that if you see a lone baby animal, unless it is obviously injured or in immediate danger from predators or traffic, monitor the situation from afar; the likelihood is that it does not need rescuing. Young animals have a much greater chance of survival if they remain with their mothers.

WildAid works across the North west where young people are made aware of young animals and wildlife welfare through lively and engaging workshops.  If you work at a school, youth group or would know someone who would learn from one of our workshops - then please contact us:






"It's all about encouraging people to participate and learn about the natural world through hands on discovery."
