Wildlife Course 4

Adult Learning during COVID-19

Secret World Wildlife Rescue is a respected source of expertise and centre of excellence where British wildlife can receive the best care. We are happy to share this knowledge with anyone who wishes to learn more about wildlife and caring for wild animals. We also offer professional courses for veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses.

Our Wildlife Courses are suitable for anyone, of any standard or experience, who has an interest in wildlife. Those attending all four courses receive the SWWR Certificate in Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release and a badge. In order to ensure the best experience for all delegates we ask that everyone attends Course 1 before booking on to courses 2, 3 or 4.

Our courses are normally run on site as four one-day courses and include a practical component. At the moment due to COVID-19 restrictions we are unable to run our courses in the normal manner and instead will deliver them virtually in late 2020 and early 2021 as four half-day events. It will be possible to view these either live or recorded by registered delegates. We hope those attending the courses online will also be able to attend a practical session to support their learning once restrictions are lifted – we will send out an invite to these and there will be a charge of £60 (or concessionary rates) for the whole day. Those attending all four online courses and the practical day will receive the SWWR Certificate in Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release and a badge. As an extra incentive, those attending any of the online courses will also receive a voucher for £10 off the SWWR ‘Introduction to wildlife rescue and rehabilitation’ book due to be published in the spring (one voucher redeemable per book purchased).

SOS Raffle - Coronavirus fundraiser

S.O.S. Raffle – Secret World Coronavirus Fundraiser

Entries open until 12pm on Friday 26th June

Secret World Wildlife Rescue is running the first of a series of online charity raffles to raise much-needed funds during these difficult times.

We are very pleased to offer a unique painting by artist and friend of the charity Karon Woodward as the prize for this fundraising raffle. Hand-painted on rustic recycled wood, the painting features a proud mother badger with three playful cubs. The piece measures at approximately 20″ x 23″, an ideal size for making an impact without giving up lots of wall space.

This stunning, one-off piece of artwork was kindly donated by the artist for one lucky person to win. It could be yours for as little as £2!

Here’s how to enter, and what happens next:

  • Select the number of tickets you’d like below. One ticket = one entry
  • Pay for your tickets through our website (tickets only available online, please call 01278 783250 or email fundraising@secretworld.org if you need help buying them)
    Please note that we can only accept payment for raffle tickets using either a debit card, Paypal funds, or using a bank account through Paypal or GoCardless. We cannot accept payment by credit card due to gambling regulations
  • Look out for the email containing your tickets. Each ticket has a unique number
  • Share the competition with your lovely friends!
  • We will stop the ticket sales at 12pm on Friday 26th June, and do the draw that afternoon. The winner will be notified by phone or email, and we will confirm delivery details then

Good luck everyone! It’s a really beautiful prize and one that we wish we could keep for ourselves! All proceeds from the raffle will be spent on our work to rescue, rehabilitate and release the region’s wildlife casualties. We are running only essential services at the moment, and your ongoing support allows us to keep our doors open during this crisis and into the future.
