All our native wildlife is inately scared of us. Shock kills. If you find an injured animal place it in a warm strong box so it cannot escape and ensure it is covered in a towel so it can hide then quickly contact your nearest rescue. Looking at the creature and talking to them will not help
If, as a human , you were captured by a bear and taken to his cave and then told in bear language that he was going to make you better, you would not relax and many of us would die of shock. Animals are not cuddled or talked to in the wild and the only time another species touches them is when they are going to eat them. Keep calm and quiet around wildlife and do not make eye contact - SHOCK KILLS
"Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things man will not himself find peace."

Hedgehog Awareness Week
Hedgehog Awareness Week runs from 5th 11th May 2013 and hedgehoggy events are being organised all around the country!
Hedgehog Awareness Week is organised by the British Hedgehog Preservation Society and takes place every year. It aims to highlight the problems hedgehogs face and how you can help them.
This year efforts are focussed on gardeners – there is so much that gardeners can do to help the hedgehog, very simple things like:
Ensuring there is access into the garden (all that is needed is 5” square gap).
Checking areas before strimming or mowing.
Moving piles of rubbish to a new site before burning it.
Ensuring netting is kept at a safe height.
Checking compost heaps before digging the fork in.
Stopping or reducing the amount of pesticides and poisons used.
Covering drains or deep holes.
Ensuring there is an easy route out of ponds and pools.
BHPS Chief Executive, Fay Vass, Said “There is so much the gardener can do to help hedgehogs, and with hedgehog numbers in decline it is more important now than ever. We have produced a poster highlighting dangers hedgehogs face in our gardens to mark this Hedgehog Awareness Week.” For a free copy of the poster or for membership details send an A5 sae to BHPS, Garden Dangers, Hedgehog House, Dhustone, Ludlow, SY8 3PL or see www.britishhedgehogs.org.uk.
We are currently raising funds to move to a larger purpose built site and are seeking long term support and funding to be able to help more wildlife.

Team Badger is a coalition of organisations that have teamed up to fight the planned cull of badgers. The coalition consists of the RSPCA, League Against Cruel Sports, Humane Society International/UK, Save Me, Stroud 100, Gloucestershire Against Badger Shooting, Animal Aid, Network for Animals, IFAW, The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation, Blue Badger (Conservatives against the Badger Cull), Born Free and Peta, and is growing daily. We are united in our opposition to government plans to cull badgers in a misguided attempt to control the spread of bovine TB. If the cull does go ahead as planned, at least 70% of badgers in large areas of the country, many of them healthy, will be killed. We simply cannot let that happen. read More
