helpwildlife.co.uk provides advice on what to do if you find a sick, injured or abandoned wild bird or animal

HelpWildlife.co.uk is a web-based group aiming to help those who find sick, injured, orphaned or at-risk wildlife to find information about what to do and who can help. We maintain a directory of around 600 wildlife rescue organisations and individuals to help you to find help quickly.

IF YOU HAVE FOUND A SICK, INJURED OR AT RISK WILD ANIMAL…

Advice about when and how to help sick, injured and at risk wildlife can be found at helpwildlife.co.uk/advice. You’ll also find some articles about solving conflicts with wildlife humanely there.

A directory of wildlife rescues can be found at helpwildlife.co.uk/map.

If you are unable to use our advice articles or map to find help for an animal which may be sick, injured, orphaned, trapped or otherwise at risk, please click here.

FOR OTHER ENQUIRIES

Please refer to the FAQs below.

Please note, we do not have a telephone number as we do not have sufficient resources to ensure it is consistently manned.

No, we (HelpWildlife.co.uk) operate online only. We can offer advice and help to connect you with a wildlife rescue in your area. Go to helpwildlife.co.uk/advice for advice about how to help or click here if you need bespoke advice from our helpdesk volunteers.

Thank you but we (HelpWildlife.co.uk) operate online only so we have no use for items used to care for animals. Please put your location into our map to find a wildlife rescue in your area and use the information on their listing to contact them and offer your donations.

The short answer is no. We are run entirely by volunteers from their homes so we have no jobs and cannot accommodate work experience placements. We do not have the resources to do talks and visits at this time. Please put your location into our map to find a wildlife rescue in your area and use the information on their listing to contact them to see if they can help.

We do, but please be aware this will be with online, computer based work NOT animal care. If you’re looking to volunteer directly with animals, please put your location into our map to find a wildlife rescue in your area and use the information on their listing to contact them and offer your help. To volunteer with us, visit helpwildlife.co.uk/get-involved.

You can email us here. DO NOT USE THIS EMAIL ADDRESS TO REPORT SICK/INJURED/AT RISK WILDLIFE. Emails are checked once a day so we will not see your message quickly enough to help. In these cases submit a request via helpwildlife.co.uk/helpdesk and our volunteers will reply within the hour (subject to opening times).

Please be aware that we have very limited volunteer resources. If your query is covered by the FAQs above we may not respond.
