Wildlife Rescue - Moyles Court - Registered Charity Number : 1153471
New Forest area and the Jurassic Park coastline. Wildlife Rescue is open 7 days a week. Their principle aim is to relieve the suffering of sick or injured British Wildlife in need of Veterinary treatment, car and rehabilitation, with an aim of returning animals back to the wild. Over 2,500 British Wildlife casualties arrived at the Hospital last year.
The animals rescued consist mainly of nesting birds, swans, sea birds, hedgehogs, deer, fox, badgers, squirrels, snakes, bats, owls. Many wild animals are attacked by cats or dogs. Birds are also attacked by larger birds like crows and magpies.
There are also many in accidents with the busy roads in the New Forest.
All these wild animals if taken the to local vets are likely to be referred to wildlife specialists. This can mean a vast number arriving daily at Wildlife Rescue. Up to 6 or 9 every day throughout the year is not unusual especially in the spring and summer, that the numbers can be much higher with some days quite overwhelming.
They are self-funding and receive no Government, Lotto or other guaranteed external funding. They rely on the generous support of donors and fundraisers.
If you feel able to help them in their work your donation will help them provide life saving Veterinary treatment and care to the British Wildlife casualties that arrive daily. Any amount that you give will help change the lives of the creatures they care for. You can either donate a regular monthly amount or make a one-off donation.

Thank you for helping
Baby birds can either be nestlings or fledglings. Healthy fledglings which will be covered in down and feathers, might well survive if their are learning to fly and under surveillance by their nearby parents. The nestlings, perhaps pushed or fallen from their nests, could be injured, sick or in danger and will need rescuing. Feeding is not advisable until contact for advice.
A baby bird once touched will not be rejected by its parents. Putting the bird back in its next if it is not injured would be a good option if the nest is within reach. Keep an eye out for the parents for a couple of hours.
If cats are a danger in the garden or area it is best to find a box for the bird, or a place the cat is unlikely to find the bird, under a hedge is a good place. If would be better to rescue the bird rather than have it attacked by a cat, but always best is to first see if the bird would be alright staying near its parents.
