On –line help available for injured wildlife


This is the culmination of a year’s work of collecting, collating and verifying correct procedures for wildlife rescue, care and rehabilitation.
You find an injured fox, rabbit, bird, perhaps you suspect you have found an orphaned youngster of any  wildlife species. What do you do next? Where do you turn for help?  How do you know you’re doing the right thing?

It’s a matter of life or death to any young creature and now it’s life maybe in your hands.  The above website is there to help you.  It’s an informative website with  easy- to- follow step by step instructions for emergency first aid.

Any group or individual interested in caring for wildlife would do well to educate themselves from this website and when and if the need arises be well-informed on how to immediately cope with the situation.
