New Year Thank Yous 2019!

We would like to thank everyone who took part in the dip in the sea, and everyone who sponsored one of our team.

Seven fundraisers, Pauline, Katie, Jamie, Paul, Thomas, Gemma and Caroline managed to raise £1,000 for us, to help the animals in our care, by getting into the cold water at Lyme Regis on 30th December.

 

We would also like to thank everyone who donated towards our shoe box appeal, we had in excess of 50 boxes, all with some amazing goodies in for the animals.

 

EU Regulation 1143/2014 the Invasive Alien Species (Enforcement and Permitting) Order 2019

EU Regulation 1143/2014 the Invasive Alien Species (Enforcement and Permitting) Order 2019 will come into force on 28 March 2019, a day before the UK is scheduled to leave the EU. This Regulation will prevent the keeping and release of non-indigenous ‘Alien Species’ such as grey squirrels and muntjac deer.

 

At present Natural England issues licences to allow for these animals to be kept and released in areas of England where they pose no threat to native species. This system has worked well for many years. Most large wildlife rescue centres in the south of England are licensed to treat and release, once healthy, set numbers of these animals, many of which are orphans, rescued by concerned members of the public. At the end of March however, under the new EU system, all rescue centres and veterinary surgeons in the UK will be required to euthanise animals bought to them. The result will be that any member of the public who finds a grey squirrel, muntjac deer or other ‘alien species’ and takes it to a centre will either be turned away, or the animal will be euthanised, no matter how healthy it is.
