Secret World Wildlife Rescue

Secret World Wildlife Rescue (SWWR) was registered in 1993 and runs purely on donations. It now cares for over 5,000 wildlife casualties every year. Half of those will be orphans and 35% will be brought in by Secret World Response Drivers. In addition to the dedicated staff team, a network of approximately 300 volunteers are essential for all the care and running of the charity.

Every animal is important to the charity, no matter how large or small or how common the animal may be – from a baby bat to a Red deer. Once ready for release, adults are returned to the same location they came from, but orphans need to have new homes found for them: Secret World has a Wildlife Release Manager whose job it is to find suitable territories.
