With over 500 animals to care for across our three Wildlife Custody Centres (WCC), our greatest single expenditure is simply feeding and keeping these animals healthy. We have so many animals to care for and yet we don't have a stable source of income, since each and every month it depends on the number of volunteers who come to visit. A regular gift really will make a huge difference. Not only will it offer greater stability to the organisation, but it will also help us manage funds more effectively.

There are three different levels of sponsorship:
