Coronavirus Guidelines

We, at Cuan Wildlife Rescue are committed to keeping members of the public, our staff and volunteers safe during these times with the Coronavirus.  Therefore, we may ask you some other questions when you ring us up after finding an animal!  These are for safety purposes and not designed to be intrusive or cause offence, I hope you can appreciate that we need to ask them.

You will be asked; if you have had contact with anyone who has tested positive for the coronavirus, feel unwell or are showing any of the symptoms associated with it.  We may ask you to leave  the animal in a safe place so we can collect it without having contact with you.  Again, please do not take offence, it is to protect you and ourselves.

If you do come to our hospital, please wear a face mask.  There is hand gel available to use before and after entering.  Please do not ‘borrow’ it (!), it is for use for everyone who comes.  There are handwashing facilities available.

Thank you for your understanding, we still need to care for Britains’ wildlife and continue helping the orphaned, sick and injured that need us.  Thank you for your support.

Cuan Wildlife Rescue

Cuan Wildlife is a wildlife rescue centre where we take in sick, injured or orphaned wild animals and birds, with the aim of nursing them back to health. We regularly admit over 5,700 animals & birds in one year. Once fully recovered, great emphasis is placed on returning them to the wild - in most cases, this means back to the area from where they came, where they may have a mate waiting, or where, at least, they will be familiar with their territory or hunting ground. Cuan Wildlife rescue is a registered Charity which is dependant on donations from the public and businesses.

We have lots of hungry fledglings to feed here at Cuan. Not to mention all the nestling!
We are getting through so many waxworms, live mealworms and our mixes.
We don’t just use insects for birds but many other insect loving animals!

Did you know that mother rabbits will only visit her young once or twice a day?
Rabbits have complex social structures with low ranking females making a nest away from the main Warren. These are the kits that most people come across as “abandoned”.

Hares have their young in a nest above ground. She will visit the leveret to feed once a day and like rabbits she does not stay with them.
Rabbits and leverets are notoriously difficult to hand raise with both requiring specialist care. With that in mind it’s important to be absolutely sure that the the kits or leverets are abandoned.

The leveret in the photo was taken by a member of the public. Being unsure she contacted us before intervening. Animals all have unique behaviours so it’s important to get the correct information before doing what you think maybe the right decision.

Deer rescues can be dangerous! Dani, one of our very experienced staff members was able to restrain the trapped deer and cut it free.

Animals that can be treated in-situ are always good for species that can’t handle stressful situations. Deers and many other species can suffer from capture myopathy, a condition when extreme stress takes over the body and in most cases can be fatal.

Another success!
