Wildlife First Aid Information

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

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


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

Irish Wildlife Matters 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
