A book about the wild life of Trevor Weeks founder of East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service has been published in aid of the charity.
Trevor spent much of his childhood around animals and out in the countryside, so it was no surprise that his life became dedicated to wildlife rescue and conservation work.
His wild career started in 1985 when he joined the Eastbourne Conservation Volunteers spending most of his weekend helping improve the countryside for wildlife. Year by year his devotion to wildlife grew and has supported him through some tough periods in his life like the loss of his mother to cancer when he was 21. Although Trevor’s rescue work has mainly been local to East Sussex his work with British Divers Marine Life Rescue and WRAS has seen him travelling to Cumbria to rescue a trapped dolphin, a seal in Dungeness Nuclear Power Station, living in a field near Ramsgate Kent to help injured swans flying into overhead power cables, rescuing a deer trapped in the grounds of Haslar Naval Hospital in Hampshire and attending the Sea Empress Oil Spill in Wales in 1996. Trevor has been at the sharp end of wildlife rescue. He has even been hospitalised on a few occasions!
This book celebrates Trevor’s wild life as September 2015 sees Trevor complete his 30th year undertaking wildlife rescue and conservation work, as well as the 20th anniversary of the establishment of East Sussex Wildlife Rescue, the 10th anniversary of East Sussex WRAS becoming a registered charity.
This book has been written purely to help raise vital funds for East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service to help keep the charities ambulances on the road saving thousands of casualties every year.
