Who can help with injured wildlife?

Many people contact us about injured birds and animals.

This is not our area of expertise and unfortunately we cannot take in injured wildlife - but there are lots of specialist rescues who will be able to help. Most of these organisations rely on volunteers, so please call the one that is closest to you first.
