Mallydams Wood

Mallydams Wood is a well established wildlife rehabilitation centre, education centre and woodland nature reserve in the South East of England, covering Kent, Sussex and Hampshire. 

Admittance of wildlife 

Mallydams Wood is open for the admission of wild mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians in need of care.  Due to the ongoing avian influenza outbreak, the centre is currently unable to rehabilitate gulls and sea birds.

Opening hours are 9-5, 7 days a week.

Visiting Mallydams Wood

Our site is not open to the general public apart from dropping off injured wildlife at the wildlife centre. The welfare of animals is our priority so we can't allow tours of the wildlife centre as too much human contact can prevent animals from making a full recovery.

Access to our 55 acre woodland nature reserve is by permission only or during organised public events.


Mallydams Community Education Hub   The Mallydams Education team provide animal welfare education for a wide range of community settings, from early years and nurseries, to primary and secondary schools, college departments and community youth groups. We invite groups on site for immersive animal welfare learning and we can also visit you in your own setting to deliver assemblies, workshops and community action for animals. If you have an education enquiry please contact our Community Engagement Manager by email: and she will put you in touch with the best member of the education team to support your request.
