The first year at Ireland’s inaugural wildlife hospital
Did you know the first dedicated Wildlife Rehabilitation & Teaching Hospital was opened near Navan in Meath in February this year?
Ten months on, it is clear this was a much needed resource with over 2,500 wild animals coming through our doors. The wild patients are all native Irish animals and include birds such as kestrels, owls, swans, garden birds and sea birds as well as mammals such as bats, otters, hedgehogs and red squirrels to name but a few.
With a resident vet, visiting vets, animal care & education officer, qualified interns and many volunteers this Wildlife Hospital is run mainly on public donations. Conservation and education is at the core of what we do, with school visits, outreach, courses and webinars available to all.
