WRAS is dedicated to helping sick and injured wild animals and birds in North London and parts of Hertfordshire and Essex. If you need help or advice on the care of wildlife please phone us on 0208 344 2785 or 07970 141282. Important: Please telephone us before bringing casualties to us.

WRAS has been running since the 1980s and has been located in Trent Country Park in Enfield since 1999. We hope to stay there for many more years and we need public support in order to do this. We are the only wildlife hospital in the London area.

We aim to enable visitors to get close to the resident wildlife and to understand the problems that wild animals and birds face in our modern society and also to educate people as to how we can help to protect our wild creatures from harm such as poison and injury.

OPENING TIMES IN WINTER (From end of October):

ANIMAL CENTRE 10.00 am to 3.30 pm

TEA SHOP 9.30 am TO 4.00 pm

FROM MONDAY 7th DECEMBER 2015 THE TEA SHOP AND ANIMAL CENTRE WILL BE CLOSED ON WEDNESDAYS AND THURSDAYS EXCEPT DURING SCHOOL HOLIDAYS. AS WE GET DEEPER INTO WINTER WE SUGGEST YOU TIME YOUR VISIT TO ARRIVE NO LATER THAN 3.00pm

Note: if the weather is very wet or icy/snowy we may have to adjust these times. Please phone for information before your visit.

We are pleased to have veterinary surgeon Mr John Gladstone on the team at WRAS at Trent Park. We have known and used John for 17 years and are thrilled to have him with us. This means that all the medical needs of the wildlife casualties will be treated on site and we can also give students much more in experience when coming to us for placements. John will be working from our fully equipped veterinary treatment room.
