Wildlife First Aid Information
Found a casualty and need help?
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
Does it need 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
If you see an animal with obvious injuries or that is cold and limp, it needs to be rescued.

Wildlife Hospital – Why Ireland needs one and what it does
We Need Your Help
We need your help to build this Wildlife Hospital. We need it because Ireland’s wildlife is in trouble, many species are struggling to survive, and some are becoming extinct. The wildlife we have need all the help we can give.
