about us

We are a small registered wildlife charity that last year responded to over 1600 wildlife casualties. Each year this number increases along with our costs. We care, treat, and rehabilitate all of our British wildlife.

 

We originally started supporting local vets and now receive wildlife from the public . We are available seven days a week for advice and admissions. We are sometimes able to collect and rescue wildlife in a variety of unusual situations.

 

Our primary goal is to simply give these creatures a second chance.

 

Much of our wildlife, when it comes into contact with man, obtains injuries that are not in themselves life threatening. However, in the wild a lack of food and an inability to protect yourself can and often does mean the end.

 

A creature with a relatively simple injury can rest and be fed and is easily returned to the wild where it belongs. Imagine breaking your leg and not being able to feed because you can't get to Sainsbury's, or worse, becoming someone's dinner before you die......... Sounds ridiculous but not if you are a wild animal.

 

We treat a multitude of injuries including serious injuries such as road traffic accident with internal complications and many broken limbs.

 

Our goal is to return all our injured wildlife to the wild where they belong and we are extremely successful.

We have over the last few years hand reared many orphaned creatures such as tiny wrens and magnificent fawns with everything in between. This is a very rewarding and vital part of our work. Not only are these programs successful but also it enabled us to study these animals more closely giving us knowledge and education that can be shared with other organizations. This knowledge is used to increase our successes, improve our care program and better understand the needs and nature of the species.

 

We address or should be say redress the natural balance.

 

WHY WE DO IT .....

 

 

Once upon a time, there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work.

One day, as he was walking along the shore, he looked down the beach and saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself at the thought of someone who would dance on the beach in the day and so he walked faster to catch up.

As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man and that what he was doing was not dancing at all. The young man was reaching down to the shore, picking up small objects and throwing them into the ocean.

He came closer still and called out "Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?"

The young man paused, looked up, and replied "Throwing starfish into the ocean."

"I must ask, then, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?" asked the somewhat confused wise man.

To this, the young man replied, "The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don't throw them in, they'll die."

Upon hearing this, the wise man commented, "But, young man, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can't possibly make a difference!"

At this, the young man bent down, picked up yet another starfish, and threw it into the ocean. As it met the water, he said,
"It made a difference to that one." ......................and that’s what we do one at a time .

 

Each year our support grows and each year we rescue more creatures.

 

You too can throw a few starfish back.

As well as working on the front line we give talks and show our stunning wildlife to a variety of groups and schools - Wildlife Rocks Me Talks. We believe that a better understanding of these creatures will promote not only tolerance but a willingness to integrate them into our lives.

 

Children will become the custodians of our planet and we hope, through our talks, will have a better understanding of and take an interest in our wonderful wildlife as they take on that ultimate role.

 

We raise funds by donations, our newsletter, attending County Shows, Car boot sales, selling on eBay, Fairs, and our shop.

How we started

 

Whilst out walking with my dog in the early 1980's I found a small hedgehog stuck in a fence. He was too fat to go through and his prickles wouldn't let him go back.READ MORE
