Project information

Helping Wildlife

Cuan wildlife rescue centre is a 24/7 rescue and rehabilitation centre based in Shropshire. We take over 10,000 calls each year about sick, injured and orphaned wildlife and take in over 3,500 admissions. Every year this costs roughly £180,000 to run and we need help with everyday running costs.

  • Need

    Need

    Human's impact on our wildlife and their habitats are the main cause of animals and birds needing care and rehabilitation. We aim to look after sick, injured and orphaned wildlife, with great emphasis on returning them to the wild once recovered.

    Solution

    By helping any wildlife that comes into our care, this can be for anything from cat/dog attacks to road traffic accidents. We can then release animals back into the wild, where they belong.

    What success will look like

    We post videos and photos everyday on all our social media about the animals that come in, their treatment and finally their release.


  • Impact

    Impact

    We aim to educate the public through social media and when people bring animals to us about caring for our wildlife, when to leave alone and when to step in, how to look after their habitats and learn about their needs.

    Risk

    The only risk is not raising enough money each year to continue with our work. We continue with fundraising and events on an ongoing basis to raise valuable funds to ensure we can meet these needs.

    Reporting

    Through social media, emails and news letters.
