This bank holiday weekend offers you the chance to come and join us for our summer fundraising event. Wildlife Wonders will be a great day for all the family. You will get to meet our resident birds of prey and hear their stories, as well as hear fascinating talks about the animals we help. There will be games and nature activities as well as face painting. For the adventurous visitors, you can walk our woodland themed treasure trail through our beautiful countrywide surroundings. Bring the whole family for a fun day out. We rely solely on charitable donations and these fundraising events raise money to care for injured, sick and orphaned wildlife.
A familiar face has returned to Secret World Wildlife Rescue to continue its recovery. Amore the Otter was rescued by Secret World in February and after spending a period of time under the care of staff here, Amore was transferred to another animal care centre to be paired with another orphaned otter called Amico. Secret World boasts a state of the art pre-release facility for orphaned otters so the decision was made to bring both otters back to continue their care. Otters are sociable animals and together they will learn the vital skills needed for their release to the wild in 18 months time.
This year we are launching our Wildlife Christmas Shoebox appeal. Over the course of the next few months Britain’s wildlife will be preparing for Winter. With days getting shorter and the weather getting colder, animals will be getting ready and will need all the help they can get.
With this in mind we are appealing for help to look after the animals in our care over the Christmas period. Christmas is a time for giving and we are hoping to be able to offer our patients a Christmas treat. We are asking members of the public and schools to get involved by sending in shoeboxes filled with goodies which will help us look after the wild animals in our care over the winter period. Keep an eye out on our website for more details.
