Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue is committed to encouraging through education the integration of wildlife into our countryside and our gardens to enable our wildlife to exist alongside us in a natural balance. Each year we care for in excess of 1500 wildlife casualties. It is everyone’s responsibility to preserve biodiversity. Many of these are injured at the hand of man either directly or indirectly. Although caring for the injured animal is our first priority we feel our school's educational program is as important. To educate children at a young age and give them a greater understanding of the wildlife that surrounds them will help them make decisions in their adult life for the longevity of our native wildlife.
We spend much of our time talking in schools reaching the next generation via worksheets, direct animal contact and talks to promote understanding and conservation of wildlife environments.
We are committed to encouraging children to care for their environment and reduce the use of pesticides by removing the myths that surround our spectacular wildlife and encouraging the next generation to learn and understand that a garden can be balanced and is a great environment for both humans and our native wildlife.
