Background

There’s not an NHS for our precious wildlife, but the UK has an incredible network of wildlife hospitals. This project supports the work of Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue in the south of England. Full time, resident veterinary surgeons, with state-of-the-art equipment provide emergency care to our native bats, hedgehogs, foxes, badgers and much more. Secure and protected soft release sites allow managed reintroduction to the wild.

Why did we choose this project?


How does it work?

The wildlife hospital is equipped with specialist equipment including x-ray machines, a fully functioning operating theatre and intensive care units. There are full time veterinary surgeons living on site, supported by a team of trained volunteers. The rescue has a network of secure soft release enclosures and sites for reintroducing outpatients into the wild.

How do we know it's working?

Wildlife patient numbers are carefully recorded and monitored, as are numbers of outpatient releases and long-term tracking of outcomes among released animals.
