Mallydams Wood Wildlife Centre is equipped to deal with a variety of wild animals, from orphaned fox cubs to oiled birds.
Our staff are very knowledgeable and experienced in the treatment and rehabilitation of wildlife casualties, their release and monitoring their survival in the wild. And of course we’d be lost without our tireless volunteers!
Our facilities include
- Veterinary examination room and x-ray machine.
- Orphan rearing and treatment areas.
- Specialised oiled bird cleaning facilities.
- Isolation units for larger birds or mammals.
- Rooms for oiled seabirds, growing orphans and areas for washed seabirds and injured birds.
- Pool aviaries for seabirds and water birds.
- Custom-built seclusion aviaries, some with shallow pools.
- Long-term mammal pens with indoor and outdoor areas.
- A deep pool for recovering oiled seabirds and seals.
