Injured Wildlife

Many people contact us about injured birds and animals of many kinds. However, we are a nature conservation charity, not a wildlife rescue charity, so, unfortunately, we cannot deal with injured wildlife unless it is found on one of our nature reserves. Please see below for a list of organisations that will pick up or care for injured wildlife.
