Want A 'Wildlife First Aid Officer'
In Your Workplace?
Wildlife casualties need help urgently when found and it's surprising how many people find a wildlife casualty on the way to work or even on the work place premises itself.
As a business, if you allocate one of your staff to be a Wildlife First Aid Officer, you'll be able to help local wildlife in a way that so few work places currently know how to. You can also make public (through promotional materials on the premises or on social media) about how you're doing all that you can to help your local wildlife: you might be surprised at how much it raises your company profile in the area.
An abandoned or orphaned baby bird, rabbit kit or fox cub (or an injured bird or hedgehog) for example, can find themselves desperate for help and - especially in urban areas - most people don't have the first idea what to do with the casualty or where to take it, to get it the urgent care that it requires.
Having a 'WFAO' ensures that you're set up to know exactly how to help a wildlife casualty, minimising any stress that yourself and your staff might experience and giving you the best chance to save that furry/feathery/spiky life.
There's a couple of pages in the "Wildscape My Life Handbook" that carefully outline how to set up a 'WFAO' in your workplace but if you find that you want more one to one bespoke help, here's how WW can help...
Over a 60 minute 1-to-1 online Zoom meeting, WW can...
1. Help you choose the member of staff to allocate as a 'Wildlife First Aid Officer'.
2. Write up a bespoke set of directions for you and your staff (for your WFAO to follow and help everyone else to follow too) if you find a wildlife casualty so that it can have the best chance of survival, experience as little trauma as possible, everyone can keep calm about it all and the casualty can get help ASAP in ways that will allow your work day to be interrupted as little as possible (whilst still saving a life).
3. Help you to create a list of your local Wildlife Rescues and Vets so that you have their numbers and addresses to hand.
4. Make sure you're all set up with the right animal carriers and disinfectant to keep on your workplace premises for when they're needed.
5. Make sure your allocated WFAO knows how to transport a wildlife casualty (to a Wildlife Rescue/Vet) to give it the best chance of survival.
6. We can even help you to come up with some promotional info/posts to share about your new wildlife support initiative.
7. Offer advice on how to support local wildlife in other ways too: possibly preventing wildlife casualties from occurring in the first place.
As a business you'll be invited - if you would like to - to join an exclusive (free) Facebook group for other businesses with Wildlife First Aid Officers, to support one another and also pose any questions in the group so that Wildscaping Worldwide can also offer ongoing support as you get accustomed to living more with local wildlife.
(A bit of nationwide networking might be nice too).
