Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Projects
Wildlife rehabilitators can receive from between 60 to over 6000 wild animals each year.
Why you should support our cause
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, sometimes a year or more. 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.
