What We Do

TVWC wildlife rescueThe Tweed Valley Wildlife Carers rescue and care for injured and sick wildlife in the Tweed Valley.

Our objectives and aims revolve around the conservation and welfare of our local wildlife. Our foremost aim is the rescue and rehabilitation of native fauna for return to their natural environment, using the best and most up-to-date information from all relevant sources. We also aim to educate the public by encouraging the protection and welfare of our native wildlife and their habitat.

What To Do if You Find Injured Wildlife

1. Place injured wildlife in a box lined with a towel to prevent it from sliding around during transport. Cover the box with a loose lid or towel to create a dark environment to prevent stress. DO NOT administer food or drink to an injured bird or animal. Put the box in a quiet cool place in Summer and in a quiet warm spot in Winter months.

2. Take note of the exact location where it was found and tell the rescuer so, after rehabilitation, it can be released back into the wild.

3. Call the hotline:

Follow instructions from the TVWC member you speak to on the hotline.
