Are You A UK Wildlife Rescue / Rehabber?

DO YOU NEED WILDLIFE CASUALTIES TRANSPORTED FROM VETS PRACTICES OR MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC, TO YOU?

 

If you would like help getting wildlife casualties transported over to you (from members of the public, who cannot transport themselves) UKWT can recruit, equip and fund local Volunteer Drivers (or even MORE Drivers, if you already have a list) to go onto your personal Drivers List, for you to contact to ask them to transport.

 

- If you would like help getting wildlife casualties (that have been dropped off to your vets, for treatment) back to your Wildlife Rescue, UKWT can recruit, equip and fund local Volunteer Drivers (or even MORE Drivers, if you already have a list) to go onto your personal Drivers List, for you to contact to ask them to transport.

 

ARE YOU A WILDLIFE RESCUE/REHABBER WHO HAS USED UK WILDLIFE TRANSPORTERS BEFORE?

So...  Instead of you phoning us or sending members of the public to phone us (and often having to wait ages because you are 5th or 6th in the queue) you will instead SOON be sent - by UKWT - your own list of Volunteer Drivers (who all have carriers and towels and disinfectant already) who have pre-agreed to pick up wildlife casualties for you and who have their fuel funded by UKWT (so no cost to you at all).

[WE ARE NO LONGER COORDINATING TRANSPORT WHILE WE IMPLEMENT ALL OF THESE CHANGES, SO WE WILL BE LOOKING TO SEND OVER YOUR LIST OF VOLUNTEER DRIVERS ASAP - WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING ANY CALLS FROM MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC THAT YOU MAY SEND OUR WAY]

WHETHER YOU HAVE USED US BEFORE OR NOT - AS A WILDLIFE RESCUE / REHABBER - HERE'S WHAT HAPPENS...

HOW DO YOU GET YOUR LIST OF DRIVERS?  -  You just need to sign a GDPR form agreeing to not share the Driver info (registration plate, phone number, name and post code) with anyone outside of your Rescue - without the Driver's express permission - and then arrange with UKWT on how best to have the list set up: EG. Do you want an updated list emailed over once a month or would you like them on an online database that we can both access, etc, that is constantly updated?

Any questions and/or if you would like your own list of Volunteer Drivers, please email Alana at alana@ukwildlifetransporters.org

WHAT CRITERIA DO YOU HAVE TO MEET, FOR UKWT TO RECRUIT, EQUIP & FUND DRIVERS FOR YOU?

AFTER MUCH CONSIDERATION - AS WILDLIFE WELFARE IS AT THE TOP OF ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING THAT WE DO - WE HAVE UPGRADED OUR POLICY TO ONLY RECRUIT, EQUIP & FUND DRIVERS FOR (AND HAVE ON OUR NEW MAP) WILDLIFE RESCUES THAT HAVE EITHER:  APPLIED FOR THE WCB AND PASSED THE FIRST STAGE (THE KNOWLEDGE ASSESSMENT)  OR WHO HAVE THE WCB ALREADY OR WHO ARE A VERY LARGE CENTRE, WITH VETS ON THE PREMISES A LOT OF THE TIME. 

AS IMPLEMENTING THESE CHANGES IS NOT IDEAL AT THIS TIME OF YEAR, THE WILDLIFE CARE BADGE TEAM HAVE CREATED A FAST TRACK PROCESS TO HELP ALL WILDLIFE RESCUES PAST THE FIRST STAGE (IT TAKES 1HR) ASAP (EVEN AS SOON AS ON THE SAME DAY AS APPLYING FOR THE BADGE, IF THAT IS CONVENIENT FOR THEM).  

 

UKWT & WCB WILL DO ALL WE CAN TO HELP WITH THE RESUMED TRANSPORT OF WILDLIFE CASUALTIES ASAP.

Any questions and/or if you would like your own list of Volunteer Drivers, please email Alana at alana@ukwildlifetransporters.org

DO YOU HAVE A TEAM OF DRIVERS THAT YOU WOULD LIKE UKWT TO EQUIP WITH CARRIERS/DISINFECTANT?

If you have a team of Drivers and some don't have carriers/disinfectant and you'd like us to help, please email Alana at alana@ukwildlifetransporters.org
