TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF THE OUTREACH VISITS WE HAVE ATTENDED 

COMMUNITY

TALKS

We give talks at WI groups, Rotary Clubs, wildlife groups and other events for those who have an interest in the care of UK wildlife. Our speakers have many years of wildlife care experience and will give an informative and engaging talk.

 

Our 1-hour PowerPoint talk covers:

  • The threats to UK wildlife

  • How we began

  • Our facilities

  • The casualties we treat

  • Common injuries

  • Our impacts

  • How to make a difference

 

We charge a fee of £60 – or the equivalent in Hospital wish list items.

There is no charge for travel unless your event location is beyond 15 miles of West Sussex. For those longer journeys there is a charge of 45p per mile for each additional mile travelled. This applies to both the outwards and return journeys.

 

If you are interested in booking a talk please let us know:

T: 01243 641672 - extension 2

 

Please note that minimal human contact is vital for the welfare of wildlife patients – we do not bring wild animals to our talks.

 

SCHOOL

OUTREACH

Our schools and community education programme delivers fun, memorable learning experiences for young people to inspire their curiosity and encourage a love of British wildlife. 

 

Why is this type of education important?

  • To inspire young people to respect and protect wildlife through furthering their knowledge and understanding.

  • To encourage young people to be active outdoors and reconnect with nature to improve health and wellbeing.

  • To increase understanding of how human activities can directly affect wildlife and how to make practical and positive changes for the better.

  • Education can reduce the incidence of wildlife injuries, casualties and orphans that would otherwise die or require the care of a wildlife rehabilitation centre.

 

Who is the programme aimed at?

West Sussex and East Hampshire-based schools and groups with cross-curricular and extra-curricular talks, activities and workshops – eg Scouts, Guides, Brownies, Rainbows, Cubs, after-school clubs or community groups.

 

What is available?

  • Half day interactive workshop

  • Introductory assemblies

  • 1 hour class talk and discussion

  • Handouts for use in school projects and follow-ups

 

What will it cost?

The programme was achieved through funds awarded by grants and other charitable trusts. Talks and visits have no official charge to school bodies. We recognise the financial pressures on school resources - however, we do encourage children to participate in fundraising in aid of the wildlife patients at Brent Lodge. There is a charge for extra-curricular and community groups.

Please note that minimal human contact is vital for the welfare of wildlife patients – we do not bring wild animals along. Demonstration animals are at our discretion.
