From Rescue to Refuge, Helping Our Wildlife in Need

As volunteer wildlife shelters we are looking at methods to not only reduce our environmental impact but also help reduce the shelters running costs. This project is in two comp6onents: 1. our energy consumption. The running of washing machines, fridges and specialised heating cooling and medical equipment are essential for keeping our animals fit and well but also consume a lot of power. 2. The second component is the supply of specialised medical equipment, formula, grains and bedding for wildlife. These vital items are the largest cost to wildlife shelters and these costs grow each year as the number of animals arriving for rehabilitation also increases, meaning funds cannot be spared for vital enclosure upgrades.
