As many of you are aware WRAS is run by Barry and June Smitherman. They are a small team with limited resources. For wildlife emergencies, please contact the team between the hours of 9am - 5pm on 07970 141282.
For out of hour emergencies we suggest contacting the RSPCA or St Tiggywinkles.
Due to the Coronavirus, like many other wildlife centres and zoos, we were forced to close our doors to the public in early Spring and late December 2020, which had a significant impact on cash flow.
Most of our funding is generated through visitors to the center. During a ‘normal’ year the visitor footfall over Spring into Summer, generally generates enough income to cover our operating costs until the following year. Last year was very different as we had to rely on 100% donations to keep the center operational.
In 30 years, this has been the biggest challenge to our survival. Every small action can generate big results. Your gift will continue to care for sick and injured wildlife.
Set inside the borders of Trent Park, the Wildlife Centre is home to reduced animals and birds.
Come and take a stroll around the Wildlife Centre and meet our residents! Enjoy the play area set amongst the trees, or just pop in for some refreshment - a cup of tea or coffee - from our tea shop.
