As many of you are aware WRAS is run by Barry and June Smitherman. They are a small team with limited resources. Due to poor health, Barry will not be responding to helpline calls.
If you have a query related to wildlife, we suggest that you contact the RSPCA or St Tiggywinkles.
We aim to resume the service as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience and continued support Barry & June Smitherman, Co-founders.
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.
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. This year has been very different and we have 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.
