Drawing together Vets, Rescuers, Rehabbers & other wildlife ‘professionals’ to discuss the following concerns...
(Since nowhere in the current law is it recognised that our UK 'Wildlife' has the 'right to life' - or a right to a great quality of life - and because a change in the current legislation could empower wildlife rescue professionals to offer even greater care, improved resources & a greater/fairer chance for every wild creature that requires care after becoming poorly/injured).
1. FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORMING/CONVERTING/AMENDING THE CURRENT LEGISLATION.
From a wild creatures’ POV - “1. The right for a fair chance - to be treated on a case by case basis with MY best interests at heart (WHAT are my best interests?) and… 2. To recognise that I am a ‘being’ (a species equivalent to a human ‘person’) with my own will, my own life, my own hopes and dreams (my own territory/family/mate that I could return to?) and my own ability to adapt & make the most of the best life that I can possibly have…”
2. CHANGES THAT COULD BE DEVELOPED FOR THE RESCUE COMMUNITY.
Far greater & available resources for all // Support (emotional, physical & financial) // A common understanding & bear minimum of standards // A minimum of regulation for every vets, rescue & rehabber to create trust and to begin to ensure that every creature is allowed the very best chance & that there is accountability for their treatment/sanctuary/release?
(It is paramount that these changes come from the finding of a common ‘understanding’ and united agreement between those most experienced & active in the empowerment & care of our local ‘wild’ creatures, such as Rescues, Rehabbers & Vets).
