In Your Workplace Or At Home?

IN THE 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 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.

Having a 'WFAO' ensures that you're set up to know exactly how to help a wildlife casualty, minimising any stress (and of course any time that your workplace is disrupted) that yourself and your staff might experience as well as giving you the best chance to save that furry/feathery/spiky life.

There's a couple of pages in the "Wildscaping Our World 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...

AT HOME

At least half of the calls to Wildlife Rescues about poorly/orphaned wildlife casualties are from people who have found these animals in their garden and need urgent advice on how to help them.

 

If you are already set up (with the right carriers and disinfectant and towels etc) and have a list of your nearest high welfare Wildlife Rescues and/or Vet Practices to give the animal to, you will be able to help that animal within a matter of minutes (instead of the sometimes days that it can take, trying to find help) giving him/her a much greater chance of survival and ensuring that they are also pain free and comfortable much faster, as a lot of the animals you may find will have broken bones and other injuries.

SERVICE

Over a 60 minute GROUP online Zoom meeting (maximum 20 spaces for 20 organisations or home owners/renters per group session) WW can...

1. Help you choose the member of staff (if you're a workplace) or family member (if you're making sure everyone in your home is able to quickly help a wild life in need) to allocate as a 'Wildlife First Aid Officer'.

2. Write up a bespoke set of directions for you and your staff/residents (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 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/home 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. [If you're a workplace, 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.

ONGOING SUPPORT
