I have found a possibly sick, injured or orphaned wild creature
please see “Sick or Injured Wildlife” in the menu above for advice, or “Find a Wildlife Rescue” to locate a rescue organisation in your area and contact them for advice and assistance. If you are unable to find the advice or help you need on these pages, please refer to our help page for details of further assistance.Please DO NOT contact us or other organisations electronically for help – this is an urgent situation and contact should be made by telephone.
I need to make contact with a rescue listed on these pages
please use the contact details listed on their page. Please do not use the comment facility for enquiries, these comments are not passed to the rescue directly.
I have feedback on one of the rescues already listed on this site
please use the comment facility on the page relating to that rescue.
I would like to enquire about job vacancies, work experience or volunteering
Please see “Get Involved” for details of how you can help. Please note, we do not operate a wildlife rescue so we do not have opportunities for hands on volunteering or work experience. We are run entirely by volunteers so do not have any job vacancies.
I wish to contact Helpwildlife.co.uk, NOT a specific wildlife rescue, with a general, non-urgent enquiry
N.B. Helpwildlife.co.uk is a website dedicated to helping the public know what to do when faced with a wild bird or animal who may need help. We also have a directory of around 400 UK wildlife rescue organisations. We do not operate a wildlife rescue ourselves. If you have a general enquiry for us, NOT for a specific wildlife rescue, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or you can contact us via our Facebook page. Before you email, please check that it’s us you wish to contact. We get a lot of emails which were obviously intended for one of the rescues listed in our directory.
I would like to add/delete/update a wildlife rescue in your directory
Please click here to add a new rescue to the directory or here to update the information for rescue which is already listed. DO NOT USE THESE FORMS TO SEEK HELP FOR A WILD BIRD OR ANIMAL IN NEED. These forms are ONLY for updating our directory. Submissions are checked and actioned once or twice a week. We WILL NOT respond to reports of wildlife casualties submitted through this form. If you need help with a bird or animal please use our directory listings to find the details of a rescue near you and TELEPHONE them directly. Electronic communications are NOT appropriate for urgent situations as they will generally be checked infrequently.
