Things don’t always go to plan! Simon may be a real-life hero, but even the best of us can lock ourselves out of our car... Please, help preserve Simon’s legacy by donating, today. bit.ly/3NYz67G #SimonsLastWish #WildlifeRescue #AnimalRescue
Simon Cowell has devoted his life to saving wild animals that couldn’t help themselves. Now, as his last wish, he is asking for YOUR help to continue his legacy and protect the lives of generations of wildlife to come. bit.ly/3NYz67G #SimonsLastWish twitter.com/wildlifeaid/st…
Over the years, Simon’s rescues have been anything but straight forward. Distressed animals very rarely cooperate and are often very unaccommodating of approaching humans! This video shows a cygnet’s dad being less than helpful! Grant Simon’s last wish: bit.ly/3NYz67G
Battered, beaten, bitten and bruised... and he loved every minute of it! The world needs more Simon Cowells. Please, if you can, donate and help preserve Simon’s legacy; help build a brighter future for British wildlife. bit.ly/3NYz67G #AnimalRescue #Wildlife
To future-proof WAF and its invaluable work, Simon began planning a legacy project, several years ago. The charity has already spent over £1m developing a wetlands habitat and wildlife corridor. Will you help to continue Simon’s legacy? bit.ly/3NYz67G
Simon rose to popularity as the much-loved face of one of the UK’s longest-running wildlife documentary series, and one of the most popular shows on Animal Planet, ‘Wildlife SOS’. Will you help continue his legacy? bit.ly/3NYz67G
Not all heroes wear capes! Simon has dedicated 40 years of his life to ensure injured, sick and orphaned wild animals have a second chance in the wild. Please, help continue his legacy - protect the lives of generations of wildlife to come. bit.ly/3NYz67G
It is with incredibly heavy hearts that we publish this. Simon Cowell, our founder, has been diagnosed with an aggressive form of lung cancer that is terminal. Simon has dedicated his life to giving wild animals a second chance. Now, he needs YOUR help bit.ly/3NYz67G
Sadly, these 3 young #hedgehogs became orphans when their mother passed away. Luckily for them, the family who’s #garden they were in had been keeping an eye on them from afar... Now, with one of our dedicated orphan feeders, they have the best chance we can give them.
It’s vital that if you find a young #animal, always call your local #wildlife hospital for advice. Precise locations are essential in any attempt to reunite any animal with its #family. This #sparrowhawk was the latest to arrive, but sadly no nest was found.
It may be overcast today but temperatures are still high and our wildlife will feel the full effects of the heat. Please keep all water sources topped up in your garden or any outside space! If you see an animal struggling, please call a local wildlife rescue. WAF: 01372 360 404
This kestrel was hit by a car, resulting in a large swelling above one eye. Even with medication, it took over 24hrs to regain her appetite, but she is now showing good signs of improvement! She will need to spend a little longer here, but we are hopeful for a full recovery!
These 4 gorgeous youngsters were abandoned in the nest and 2 had sustained small injuries to their backs. Luckily, both #hoglets could be stitched up and given pain medication. It's always very sad to see any young #animal brought in, however, it was the right thing for them.
Wildlife Aid are looking for volunteer and/or part-time vets and vet nurses (MRCVS registered) to join our veterinary team! With more than 20,000 cases a year, no two days are ever the same. If you are interested, please send your CV to [email protected]
Releases are always a great part of our work, but reunions are just something else! Amazingly, just a few days after release, our second #falcon was spotted playing 'tag' with the young male we released a short time before! #wildlifeaidfoundation #WAF #wildlife #birds
Be sure to refresh your #wildlife #water bowls this #weekend and keep an eye out for struggling animals. Fly strike can be fatal, especially in #hot #weather! Call your local wildlife rescue for advice. Wildlife Aid - 01372 360 404 twitter.com/wildlifeaid/st…

Although the process is underway to ban #glue #traps in the #UK, we are still seeing numerous animals fall victim to these disgraceful contraptions! This female #sparrow arrived, covered from neck to tail in the sticky substance. It took our team A LOT of time to remove the glue.
Many of you will have seen the story of the young #kestrel chick that arrived with us recently, and we have a fantastic update to share! We are lucky to have access to the skills and equipment needed to attempt a reunion...and this is how it went! #Video #WildlifeRescue
This stunning little bird is a little #owl and it had quite the story... Originally found by a member of our vet team after it was seen struggling to fly. An x-ray revealed that it had a fractured coracoid. Recovering well, this gorgeous #bird will be back in the wild very soon!

If you missed it at our open weekend, get your fix of British #wildlife with this 120 page, hardcover book with #photographs taken by our very own rescuer and media manager, Lawrie! With only a limited print run, get your hands on one of these beautiful #books whilst stocks last!
Not one of the 5 young #wagtails in this #nest should be here. Removed during building work, they had to be admitted to us after the adult bird did not return. We feel like a broken record, but removing or even disturbing an active #bird’s nest is #ILLEGAL! #wildlifeaidfoundation
Life always seems to move very quickly in the animal kingdom and it's amazing how much our #fox cubs have grown since their arrival! Originally starting their WAF journey as tiny #cubs, they are now barely indistinguishable from their adult counterparts. #WAF #wildlifeaid
When you're the UK's smallest #bird, there are quite a few of you packed into a single nest! These 8 #goldcrests arrived with us after their #nest was attacked by a cat. Unfortunately, the cat had brought in the entire nest and the original nesting site was unknown. #wildlife
Loving our t-shirts @rickygervais Thanks for popping along to the Wildlife Aid Open Weekend. Always smiling and star of the show #hero @wildlifeaid

We've seen quite a few gull's here at #WAF, recently! This young herring #gull was found alone; despite desperate searching, no parents could be located. Bright, if a little dehydrated, it was placed under precautionary #quarantine until we were sure nothing else was going on.
Did you know, we've raised well over 100 ducklings so far this year?! Whilst we are still caring for our fair share of youngsters, many of them are now looking like adult birds. Enjoying the space of our larger pond enclosures, they are behaving exactly as wild #mallards should.
It's safe to say that this young grass #snake is a little miracle! Having been caught by a #cat, he was on the edge of #death, with a barely detectable heartbeat and already showing symptoms of rigor mortis! We all feared the worst but, amazingly, he slowly started to come back.
Day 1 of our open #weekend has gone off with a bang. Why not pop along to day 2, tomorrow. We promise a great day out for all the #family! wildlifeaid.org.uk/wildlife-open-… See you tomorrow!
DON'T MISS The EVENT of the Year!!! _ our Open Days are today and tomorrow 10.00 untill 17.00 Come and say hello and take a look round.
Our Open Weekend starts TOMORROW! This is the only time our doors are open to the public and we have A LOT going on! With music, food, craft stalls, talks, centre tours and more, it’s a great family day out. Doors open at 10am!
At this time of year, #wildlife rescues around the UK are inundated with young #hogs and we have already seen more than 50 this year alone! These 3 needed a little help after being found abandoned and they were just too small to survive on their own. #wildlife
Having seen almost 130 #fox cubs arrive at the centre, 2022 is looking like it's going to be our busiest year on record! Found #collapsed and barely moving, this cub was very poorly. With a weight less than a quarter of what he should have been, he also had wounds to his rump.
Open weekend is coming around so fast, but you still have time to get your hands on our hospital tour tickets! Just visit: wildlifeaid.org.uk/shop/open-week… #wildlife #animalcharity #fundraising #Charity
We see some awful cases of #animal abuse but this time, the culprits were children! A group of youngsters set upon the defenceless young Jay, whilst it was still learning to #fly. Without the ability to get away, we were astonished that it hadn't sustained any serious injuries!
This hungry little #hog is the latest youngster to arrive. Unfortunately, it seems to have got itself into a spot of bother, suffering wounds to its right side and around the front right leg. With the wounds cleaned, he'll be monitored over the coming weeks. #hedgehogs #wildlife
You wait all year for a #peregrine #falcon and then 2 come along at once! This young female, the sibling of the bird we posted about last week, had fledged a little too early. In good body condition, she just needed a little longer before she was able to take to the #air.
Do you want to be one of the first to get your hands on this lovely book of British wildlife photography (with images all taken by our media manager and rescuer, Lawrie)? We're delighted to say that they will be available for the first time at our Open Weekend (2nd/3rd of July)!
We would like to wish our fabulous patron, @rickygervais a very happy birthday today! Thank you for everything you do for the animals, Ricky! 🦊🦔🦡🦆�5gFx7UBv
Our open weekend is NEXT WEEK - who's excited?! Have you got your hospital tour tickets yet? Make sure you get them in advance from our website. Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd July Hospital tour tickets - £3 We can't wait to see you there! #WAF #WildlifeAidFoundation #openday
Road traffic accidents make up a large percentage of patient admissions, here at WAF, and this young #rabbit is the latest to arrive. Found in the middle of the #road, surrounded by its deceased #family, the poor thing seemed to be the only survivor of this tragic ordeal.
Found, collapsed, in the middle of a field, it's safe to say that this #buzzard hasn't been feeling too well! Having removed numerous #ticks from around his eyes and mouth, the vet team found the bird to have a very heavy #parasite burden, which explains the weakness. #wildlife
It's still very hot for our #wildlife, please keep topping up your garden #water sources. Remember to put one up high for the birds and another on the ground for other #animals. twitter.com/wildlifeaid/st…
It's very rare that we see #peregrine #falcons at WAF, so when they do arrive, they cause quite a buzz. In case our volunteers weren't aware of his presence, they were soon alerted by his ear-piercing screech! Finding no injuries, it's a mystery as to why this bird was grounded.
This mother #duck and her 4 #ducklings had stepped out into the path of an oncoming car. Tragically, her brood were instantly crushed, as she was thrown across the #road. Astonishingly, she had escaped with nothing more than a scrape to her beak, but had lost her entire #family!
With our #owls starting to need a little extra space, our older group have now moved into one of our larger aviaries to get to grips with how to fly. Although still looking a little white and fluffy, it won't be long before their adult plumage appears in full! #wildlife
Between June & September, we receive almost ten times the number of calls than we do at any other point throughout the year, as the annual baby boom leads to an increase in vulnerable, in-need and orphaned wildlife. #WAF #WildlifeAidFoundation #FeedOurOrphans #AnimalAdoption
The young #hedgehogs are slowly starting to find their way to WAF and it won't be long until we’re inundated! This gorgeous #hoglet was attacked by a #dog, but amazingly, managed to escape with just a small wound to its back that was easily closed. #WAF #WildlifeAidFoundation
At this time of year, we are dealing with one callout more than any other here at #Wildlife Aid - #entanglements! #foxes
It's Friday and it's #HOT! Putting out shallow dishes of water can save lives. Be sure to put them high up for the birds and on the ground for other animals, too. If you see an animal in need, please, call your local #wildlife rescue for advice, before acting. WAF 01372 360 404
