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. Before we send you to the donation page, we want to be absolutely sure that it’s us you want to donate to and not one of the rescues listed in our directory.

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.

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
