All wild animals that come into our care at our Surrey based Wildlife Hospital are treated and rehabilitated completely free of charge. Our aim is to return every animal that is capable of surviving back to its natural environment. Unfortunately, there are still too many incidents when illness or injuries – often deliberately inflicted by man – are so severe that they would never be able to survive in the wild. At the Wildlife Aid Foundation, we do not believe that it is right to keep any wild animal in captivity and so, heart-breakingly, we allow any such animal the dignity of a peaceful and pain free death in a warm and comfortable environment. This is only ever a last resort and every day, our volunteers’ dedication and care allows us to see remarkable recoveries where others might have given up.

Why do we need the Wildlife Aid Foundation?
In Britain, we are fortunate to enjoy a huge diversity of native animals and birds but every year, millions of these animals are killed, injured or suffer some trauma, either as a result of direct contact with man, or the impact that we have on the environment. Our aim is to help redress the balance between man and nature and to play our part in preserving our heritage for future generations to enjoy. While there are many organisations and schemes dedicated to the vital work of preserving natural habitats, there are still very few who help preserve the species that live within them. Here at the Wildlife Aid Foundation, we are dedicated to the rescue, care and rehabilitation of sick, injured or orphaned wildlife.

Preserving the balance of nature
Through history, we have seen how the impact of losing one species can have devastating effects on the whole ecosystem and there may be even more long-term effects that, as yet, we still do not fully understand. Each and every animal plays its own part in preserving the balance of nature. At the Wildlife Aid Foundation, no British wild animal, from any species, is ever turned away if it needs our help.

Helping others to help Wildlife
As a centre of excellence dealing with all native species, we receive thousands of phone calls, letters and e-mails asking for advice and help, from vets, schools, members of the public and other charities and organisations. We are always available to offer what help and support we can. We provide work experience for students from across the country and liaise regularly with agricultural and training establishments on the content of the wildlife section of animal care courses. Whatever the problem, if it concerns British wildlife, we will find the answer.

Education is our future
At the Wildlife Aid Foundation, we believe passionately in the importance of education in helping to preserve our heritage. Through school talks, presentations, our website and many other means of communication, we play an active role in helping future generations understand and learn about threats to Britain’s wild animals, what we can all do to help, and environmental issues that affect us all.
