Winter Warmer Appeal

Every Autumn and Winter thousands of wild animals and birds up and down the country struggle as the temperature drops and winter sets in.  Hedgehogs abandon their last litter of young to go off and hibernate. Parent birds start concentrating on building up fat reserves to survive the winter and stop helping their young.  Some young animals and birds out in the wide world for the first time struggle to cope.  As the nights draw in birds of prey, foxes and badgers hunting and foraging for food on grass verges come into conflict with our busy roads too.

Wildlife animals and birds won't know its Christmas, they will see it as just another day of the year. They still get sick from drinking polluted water, or injured after being hit by a car or caught in fishing line.

Right across the Festive Period East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service will be on duty responding to as many emergency calls as possible 24 hour a day 7 days a week.   Our staff and volunteers will be working hard every single day come rain, shine, wind or snow looking after our wildlife casualties.

PLEASE help them by making them a donation this Autumn and Winter.

£5 will pay for a couple of padded silver foil blankets to wrap up a hypothermic casualty to help save its life.

£10 will allow us to give  life saving medication to a road casualty.

£15 is enough to keep a single microwave heat pad warm all winter.

£20 buys enough cat food to look after an overwintering hedgehog for a couple of months.

£25 would pay enough fuel to keep an ambulance on the road for a day during the winter.

It doesn't take much to make a big difference to those creatures which have no owners to look after them, or help them when unwell.

This Autumn and Winter please help support East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service (WRAS) to look after as many at risk wildlife as possible.
