Help British Wildlife for World Animal Day 2018

Broadcasting star and Secret World Wildlife Rescue patron Chris Packham is challenging wildlife lovers to help raise money for British wildlife on World Animal Day tomorrow (4th October).

 

The challenge has been laid down as Secret World Wildlife Rescue, one of the leading animal welfare charities in the South West, is preparing for a cold winter which will leave many wild animals vulnerable to the elements.

 

The charity needs enough supplies and resources to see it through the busy winter months.

Chris commented: “Secret World is caring for British wildlife in an amazing way. They are wonderful people, doing incredible things.”

 

World Animal Day is a social movement which aims to raise global animal welfare standards.

Secret World, established in 1992, has a strong reputation for raising wildlife standards in the South West and its network of animal carers and volunteers rescues over 5,000 animals each year.
