Welcome to the BWRC website.

Our mission is to promote the welfare of wildlife casualties both whilst in captivity and after release back into the wild, and to ensure that casualties are handled within the framework and spirit of the law.

The Council is run by a voluntary Steering Committee, which meets several times a year and encourages contact between rehabilitators, organising symposiums and regional workshops, and periodically issuing a BWRC newsletter, "The Rehabilitator".

Follow the links above to find out more about wildlife rehabilitation and the work of the Council. If you have any comments or questions, or
would like to get involved, please contact us.

Enjoy your visit - we look forward to welcoming
you back soon.


We now have a 'Jobs' page (see tabs

can be advertised and viewed.
