The two most effective ways in which you can help wildlife
carers to undertake this important work are:
Volunteer with your local wildlife group.
Almost all wildlife care is done by unpaid volunteers. While
the number of native animals needing help is increasing,
volunteer numbers are not keeping up. Most groups provide
training if you want to help with hands-on care. All groups
also need support volunteers to help with administration,
fundraising and other duties, which free up the carers to
focus on their rescue and rehabilitation work.
There are many expenses associated with wildlife care, and
for the most part there is no government funding. Donations
help us to buy food, medication, cages, nest boxes and other
materials needed to carry out our work, We encourage people
to donate to the wildlife group in their local area.
