school sponsor

Many schools have charities for a year. Why not suggest us to your school?

 

As a wildlife rescue we deal daily with casualties that happen through a lack of understanding. We see fear and misunderstanding of the creatures that surround us. But actually they all have very special roles and purposes. By sharing our experience with children and showing them some of the wildlife that surrounds them, we hope that in the future these would-be custodians of our planet will make good decisions and ensure our survival alongside our precious wildlife in a natural balance

 

We could have a stall at your school fete.

 

One way you can help us is to organize your own fundraising events.

 

This could be at school, work or at home with family and friends. We have suggested a few ideas below to help with your fundraising on our behalf.

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, 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 READ MORE

History and science has shown us that pesticides kill far more than their target prey and are not always properly tested. The effect on wildlife can be devastating.

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.


He had been pushing so long in an attempt to free himself that the wire had cut into his body and his leg was bleeding where he had pushed and pushed against the ground. I had in my handbag a pair of pliers (no surprise to anyone who knows me) I cut the wire and removed the hedgehog READ MORE
