Helping you to help them is a charity run advice website which is part of the Starlight Trust

Even if we live in the centre of the busiest city, there is wildlife all around us. Some welcome, some not so.

Some wildlife benefits from such a close existence with humans but, more often than not, this enforced proximity leads to difficulties for wild birds and animals. In our busy lives we often bustle along without even noticing the animals we share our world with. Until such difficulties arise and we either discover an injured creature or find that one is having a negative impact on our own life.

If you have found an injured bird or animal then time is of the essence. A wildlife casualty in close proximity to people will be under a great deal of stress. Combined with its injuries this can quickly lead to the animal going into potentially fatal shock. Read our advice about what to do next and search our directory of over 400 organisations who can help by providing further advice, rescue services, medical care and rehabilitation for wildlife in need.

If you are experiencing problems with wildlife we can offer advice on how to resolve the issue. Our advice is based on the Integrated Wildlife Management system, a science based, non-lethal approach which tackles the root cause of the issue using an understanding of ecology and zoology.
