Donate provides advice on what to do if you find a sick, injured or abandoned wild bird or animal

Thank you for wanting to support our work. Sometimes folks get turned around and think this site belongs to one of the rescues in the directory so we want to be absolutely sure that it’s us you want to donate to and not one of the rescues we list.

Donating to Wildlife Rescue

If you have come to our site looking to donate to a specific wildlife rescue organisation, please contact them directly or visit their own website to make your donation. We would be delighted to receive your support but the very last thing we want to do is take donations away from front-line wildlife rescue.

About Us was founded in 2005 with the aim of helping the public to make informed decisions when finding sick, injured or apparently orphaned wildlife. The site contains advice about what to do in a wide range of situations and provides a directory of around 400 wildlife rescues in the UK who can help. We also offer bespoke advice and support through our helpdesk and facebook group.

The website is run by a charity called the Starlight Trust. You can learn more about the work of the Starlight Trust on our website

If you would like to make a small donation towards the costs of running and our advice helpdesk (about £450 a year), you can do so via our Ko-fi page.

Many thanks
