Tim Thomas MBE, Wildlife Consultant
After 40 years advising on all matters of wildlife rehabilitation, I am now a freelance consultant. My career encompassed developing,
designing and working in wildlife rehabilitation facilities, establishing policy, producing detailed in-house protocols and providing staff training in
this important field, for the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA).
In my consultancy I now provide a range of wild animal rehabilitation advice and training in the UK and overseas. I am closely involved with oiled wildlife
issues, developing response plans and advising on the practical issues of care, treatment and methods to re-establish animals in the wild.
I have also served on government committees, boards and advisory groups, all relating to wildlife welfare. These have centred on care,
treatment and return to the wild and the long-term survival of sick, orphaned and injured wildlife.
In 1986 I served on the founding BWRC committee and have remained as honorary secretary for most of its existence.
I have edited all three booklets recording the proceedings of the Council’s early symposia.
