Without whose it first good thing together was our made abundantly gBrent Lodge Wildlife Hospital provides care and rehabilitation to over 3,500 sick, injured and orphaned wildlife casualties a year across West Sussex and East Hampshire, with the aim of getting them fit and healthy for release back to their natural habitats.

Evergreen partnered with yourselves almost a year ago. How do donations help you?

We are currently in our busy wildlife care season and we have lots of hungry mouths to feed and babies to care for. Unfortunately, Coronavirus restrictions means we are still experiencing a drop in direct donations as our vet bills, food bills and animal care staffing continue to rise, so we are grateful for the support from Evergreen and their clients to help us meet the demand for our services and help wildlife in need.

What should a member of the public do if they find an injured or orphaned animal within the vicinity of West Sussex?

If you find a sick or injured wild animal and it is safe to pick up then place securely in a carboard box with air holes and call us (01243 641672) or your local vet for further advice. If you find a baby bird or mammal alone, check if the parents are nearby and monitor for at least an hour at a safe distance. Do not touch or move them, their parents may be nearby and waiting for you to leave. If they are clearly injured, abandoned or in immediate danger then please call for further advice.

How else can people support you?

Other than signing up to an insurance policy with Evergreen, people can support us by donating items from our Wishlist. Items such as tinned pet food, cleaning supplies – disinfectant, bin liners, soap powder and washing up liquid are essential to the day to day care at the hospital. You can find out about the many ways to support us by visiting our website. www.brentlodge.org.
