Every year we treat around 100 hedgehogs. Many of these come to us as tiny orphans and we care for them until they are ready to be released. It is a lengthy process but well worth it. We see these tiny, often spineless, cuties grow into adult hedgehogs and take their place back in the wild where they belong. Would your school like to name a hedgehog and care for them? It's really easy and in the spring they will be released back to the wild where they belong.
Wildlife Rocks Talks for all ages and key stages
Throughout the year we give talks, share our wildlife and experience with people and children from a diverse background. With groups of adults such as the Women's Institute and the Rotary Club and children's groups like Brownies, Guides and Cadets. We are happy to attend School Fairs and County and Village Shows.
Many schools have charities for a year - so why not suggest us to your school? As a wildlife rescue, we deal daily with casualties that happen through a lack of understanding. We see fear and misunderstanding of the creatures that surround us. But actually, they all have very special roles and purposes. By sharing our experience with children and showing them some of the wildlife that surrounds them, we hope that in the future these would-be custodians of our planet will make good decisions and ensure our survival alongside our precious wildlife in a natural balance.
Water is needed for all life and a water feature is a sure way to attract any wildlife. From a bird bath to a carefully planned pond, the choice is limitless. You can plan the plants and design of your garden for maximum enjoyment for your family and our native wildlife and have your own mini safari park!
Throughout the year, we are available to give talks and share our wildlife experience with your group or team.
We give talks to groups of adults such as Women's Institutes, Rotary Clubs and children's groups like Brownies, Guides, Cubs and Scouts. Our fantastic volunteer team are happy to attend School Fairs, Fetes, and County and Village Shows.
We visit companies for pre-arranged breaks or lunch times recreational share and learning. We bring some of our more sociable creatures so your team can see our native wildlife first hand - something they may not have experienced before. Perhaps you have some wildlife in the companies grounds and would like to know more about it? We are happy to talk about all native wildlife species.
By creating and encouraging an understanding of our wildlife it enables people to make their own informed decisions on the wonderful animals that they share their space with, and in some cases it can help to dispel some of the myths and bad press that surrounds these colourful creatures.
Wildlife is an essential part of the balance and harmony of nature. Our natural world is an amazing place - let us help you experience the wild side of life.
We offer advice on encouraging all types of wildlife into your space and encouraging you to live alongside wildlife in a natural balance. From creating wildlife-rich natural habitats in your companies grounds to giving advice on maintaining the diversity of wildlife you may already have - we are here to help.

Would your school like to name a hedgehog and care for them? It's really easy and in the spring they will be released back to the wild where they belong.
All we ask is for the children in your class to think of a hedgehog name, then write the name on a piece of paper and put it into a box. We ask that the children donate £1 or some cat or dog food or an old towel for each name they enter.
Once all the names are collected, we will pick one out of the box and your school's hedgehog will have that name. We will email the school with updates on how their named hoglet is doing and general information on hedgehogs. We will also bring the hedgehog into the school along with some of our others orphans to show the children and talk to them about the animals.
