Wildlife First Aid Information

‘Irish Wildlife Matters’ was created to address the lack of easily
accessible information on Irish wildlife rescue and first aid.

Irish Wildlife Matters (IWM) has three aims:

  • To give useful and easy to follow information and instruction to members of the public who find a wildlife casualty

  • To provide detailed information to the rehabilitator who will take responsibility for long term rehabilitation of the casualty

  • To provide a reference tool for veterinary surgeons for the treatment of wildlife casualties

IWM is a reference tool NOT a comprehensive guide to wildlife rehabilitation. Anyone undertaking wildlife rehabilitation must seek professional guidance.

DOES IT NEED TO BE RESCUED?

 Yes

If you see an animal/bird with obvious injuries or that is cold and limp, it needs to be rescued

  No


Young animals/birds that are seen away from their parents are not necessarily in  trouble, especially if they are warm and appear active, healthy, and alert

Injured wildlife can quickly go into potentially fatal shock. Follow the links on the left for advice about how you can help

WILD ANIMALS CAN POTENTIALLY TRANSMIT DISEASE AND INFLICT SERIOUS INJURIES SO NEVER ATTEMPT A RESCUE IF YOU DO NOT FEEL SAFE TO DO SO
