Caring For Wildlife

Hessilhead Wildlife Centre in Ayrshire

Here at Hessilhead Wildlife Centre in Ayrshire, we work hard to not only rescue and release wildlife. But we also offer training, support, and guidance to help others protect and care for wildlife. We run annual training courses and first aid for wildlife classes. And we have some leaflets and guides below to help you care for rescued animals. But, if you have found an injured animal, please do contact us as soon as possible for professional guidance.

We’re in the process of designing next years courses. Please check back for more details, or, join our mailing list to be kept up to date. Past courses include:

First Aid for Wildlife | Hand Rearing | Hedgehogs | Bat Care & Bat Walk
