Sightings, sick, injured, or dead animals

The Wildlife Trusts do not offer a general service for the care and rehabilitation of wildlife. We also do not offer any services related to the discovery, reporting, or disposal of dead animals, but our advice pages will help you know what to do if you find one.

Contact a local rescue centre

Quick contacts

Injured wildlife

The RSPCA (SSPCA for Scotland, or the USPCA for Northern Ireland) and Help Wildlife's pages carry more detailed advice on what to do with injured birds and other wildlife. Help Wildlife also have a useful map to help find your local wildlife rescue service.
