We are here 8am to 8pm, 365 days a year to rescue sick, injured or orphaned wildlife. If you find an animal in need of urgent attention outside these hours please contact your nearest veterinary surgeon. The casualty will then be transported to Secret World the following morning for ongoing care. We rescue or advise the public on over 5,000 animals and birds a year including hundreds of wildlife orphans such as otters, badgers, foxes and birds of prey, which we hand-rear, care for and rehabilitate, sometimes for as long as 18 months depending upon the species. We care for our animals in the following ways: Round-the-clock care. All animals brought into Secret World are assessed and casualties given veterinary treatment. If any need continuous care, such as 2 hourly feeding for example, we are able to do this thanks to our many volunteers who generously give their time. A referral service for other organisations. As a result of our expertise, our reputation has grown and we frequently take cases from all across the UK including many for the RSPCA and the Wildlife Trusts. In fact, we take 2/3 of the badger cubs in the UK. These organisations know that we offer the best standards of care. Extensive facilities. We currently have treatment areas, recovery and special rehabilitation enclosures designed specifically for the different needs of the wildlife we care for. These include enclosures for foxes and badgers, where they can forage and dig as they would in the wild, water enclosures for the otters and swans, so they can preen and build their natural oils and large aviaries for garden birds and birds of prey – all away from human contact so they have the best chance of reverting to the wild once they are strong enough to be released. The progress of all our wildlife patients is regularly reassessed so that we can be sure that any animal released back into the wild is able to survive and live a natural life. Release The ideal situation for any release is for rescued animals to go back to the area they were found, to be reunited with their family group or familiar territory. For most adult rescues this is an easily achieved and successful outcome. With rescued orphans we use a different approach. Because they spend longer in captivity and are more dependent on human care, the rehabilitation process is longer and more gradual. We have to be certain that they are ready for life in the wild and able to fend for themselves. We also need to find them a new release site. As each orphan arrives at Secret World, they are put into family groups and will remain in these groups and be released together as a unit. This helps them to learn basic skills, not only in terms of how to interact with their own species, but how to hunt, forage and protect themselves. As soon as possible we minimise human contact and interaction, because it’s important that they learn to fear humans and not associate them with food! At each release site, the animals are first released into a temporary pre-release enclosure and are support fed until release. After release, support feeding continues and is gradually decreased. This makes the process of release very gradual so that we can be certain that the animals are able to fend for themselves and that we are giving them the best chance we can at survival in the wild.
