National Wildlife Rescue Centre
Our state-of-the-art wildlife hospital cares for an average of 10,000 wild animals every year. We take care of a range of species including badgers, red squirrels, birds of prey and otters.
We are currently in our busy summer season when all the baby animals arrive! Many of these young animals require round-the-clock care which means our dedicated team need to hand-rear them at home, feeding them every couple of hours. We can care for over 50 fox cubs in just a couple of months and young otters stay with us for over a year to replicate their relationship with their mum in the wild.
Please consider making a donation to help support the care of Scotland’s wildlife.
Honey the Badger
Honey was found on the Crammond promenade in Edinburgh at only five weeks old. Due to her age, she wouldn’t have been able to survive without our help. Honey was hand reared by April, who fed Honey five times a day, reducing feeds until weaning.
Two more badgers arrived in our care so Honey had new friends to socialise and play with. After they had been successfully rehabilitated, all three were transported to a private nature reserve where they now live happily in the wild.
Your donations can provide...
£5 enables us to care for a red squirrel for a day by providing shelter, food and water.
It can cost £8 a day to ensure a badger has plenty of nourishment and comfort.
£10 will provide food, water and clean bedding for an otter in our care for a day.
