We rescue sick, injured or orphaned wildlife, always with the goal of a release back to the wild, and use our work with animals to educate the public about how they can help wildlife. 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 help wildlife 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. Education.Our wide and varied learning programme aims to raise awareness and understanding about wildlife and the natural world and inspire others to protect it. We offer talks and interactive visits to schools and community groups, as well as adult learning and Continued Professional Development for veterinary professionals and other wildlife rehabilitators.
