Community heroes are people who aren’t big wildlife rescue organisations but who would like to be able to help wildlife casualties where possible. They are people who could help in one of the following ways
– transporting wildlife casualties to a rescue in their local area
– helping to keep our rescue listings up to date
– providing a release site for rehabilitated wildlife (for this you’ll need to have that species already present in your garden and may need to have a run or aviary erected)
– provide a permanent home for disabled wildlife (eg a blind hedgehog or pigeon with a broken wing. For this you’ll need a walled garden or aviary for example)
– providing veterinary care. Please let us know if you’re a vet or nurse working at a wildlife friendly practice happy to provide first aid to injured wildlife
– small volume wildlife care/rehab. This option is for experienced individual rescuers with facilities and vet support already in place who perhaps don’t want to be listed in our directory due to the large volumes of calls this generates. If you have not previously cared for wildlife and would like to do so, please use our directory to find a rescue in your area and offer assistance to them to gain experience.
If you can help, please complete the form below. Your information will NOT be published but will be available to HelpWildlife volunteers who, depending on your preference, will contact you themselves or give your number to the finder if/when a situation arises in your area where your help is needed.
