HERE'S A VERY SHORT VIDEO EXPLAINING THE 'WFAO COURSE FOR THE HOME'...

IN THE WORKPLACE

 

Wildlife casualties need help urgently when found and it's surprising how many people find a wildlife casualty on the way to work or even on the work place premises itself.  

As a business, if you allocate one of your staff to be a Wildlife First Aid Officer, you can also make public (through promotional materials on the premises or on social media) about how you're doing all that you can to help your local wildlife: you might be surprised at how much it raises your company profile in the area.

Having a 'WFAO' ensures that you're set up to know exactly how to help a wildlife casualty, minimising any stress (and of course any time that your workplace is disrupted) that yourself and your staff might experience as well as giving you the best chance to save that furry/feathery/spiky life.

Here's how we can help...

AT HOME

At least half of the calls to Wildlife Rescues about poorly/orphaned wildlife casualties are from people who have found these animals in their garden and need urgent advice on how to help them.

 

If you are already set up (with the right carriers and disinfectant and towels etc) and have a list of your nearest high welfare Wildlife Rescues and/or Vet Practices to give the animal to, you will be able to help that animal ideally within a matter of minutes (instead of the sometimes days that it can take, trying to find help) giving him/her a much greater chance of survival and ensuring that they are also pain free and comfortable much faster, as a lot of the animals you may find will have broken bones and other injuries.

SERVICE *

Over a 60 - 90 minute GROUP online Zoom meeting, we can...

1. Help you choose the member of staff (if you're a workplace) or family member (if you're making sure everyone in your home is able to quickly help a wild life in need) to allocate as a 'Wildlife First Aid Officer'.

2. Write up a bespoke set of directions for you and your staff/residents (for your WFAO to follow and help everyone else to follow too) if you find a wildlife casualty so that it can have the best chance of survival, experience as little trauma as possible, everyone can keep calm about it all and the casualty can get help ASAP in ways that will allow your day to be interrupted as little as possible (whilst still saving a life).

3. Help you to create a list of your local Wildlife Rescues and Vets so that you have their numbers and addresses to hand.

4. Make sure you're all set up with the right animal carriers and disinfectant to keep on your workplace/home premises for when they're needed.

5. Make sure your allocated WFAO knows how to transport a wildlife casualty (to a Wildlife Rescue/Vet) to give it the best chance of survival.

6. [If you're a workplace, we can even help you to come up with some promotional info/posts to share about your new wildlife support initiative].

7. Each workplace or household gets a 'WFAO Course' certificate and personalised 'Thank You Note'.

8. Offer advice on how to support local wildlife in other ways too: possibly preventing wildlife casualties from occurring in the first place.

ONGOING SUPPORT

As a business OR home owner/renter you'll be invited - if you would like to - to join an exclusive (free) Facebook group for other Wildlife First Aid Officers, to support one another and also pose any questions in the group so that we can also offer ongoing support as you get accustomed to living more with local wildlife.​

HOW TO BOOK

I am so excited about getting to work with you.

These group sessions run every Wednesday evening at 19:00.

All of the income from this course - £30 per home/workplace - is being donated to the Wildlife Care Effort right now.

 

Please use the form below to state that you would like to take this course and I will be in touch to organise the date and how you would like to pay (through Paypal or bank transfer).

OR...

This course is genuinely great - there has been a lot of feedback on how helpful it is and how much more prepared attendees feel afterwards, to help wildlife in an emergency - but if you would rather purchase our E-Booklet for immediate download from our 'wild' Ko-Fi Shop, then it's only £10 AND you can email with any questions you may have too.  It's a 16 page E-Booklet that advises on how to be prepared in case you find a wildlife casualty & exactly what to do you if you find one.  Purchase it HERE (the purchase price goes straight to our PayPal).

* Why are we offering this course & how do we know what we're talking about?

Running UKWT for almost 3 years now, we have received the same types of calls many 1000s of times.  In most cases, the callers have been trying for hours (sometimes for days) to get the basic information that this course is offering (where to find help and what to do for the animal in the meantime).  In a lot of cases, the wrong food had already been given to the casualty, while the caller tried to find help (sometimes any food/water at all is wrong) and the casualties had been kept in inappropriate conditions that had lessened their chances of survival.  All of this is preventable as long as you are prepared when you find a wildlife casualty.

In a lot of cases, due to the time it took to find help and the wrong care being given (with the best of intentions) the casualties/orphans didn't survive, when they might have done if the caller had been prepared and had found the right help a lot faster.

Maybe you're wondering, why can't you just phone us as/when you find a wildlife casualty/orphan then?  The answer is...  We accepted and advised on calls nationally, helping about 3000 people - from late 2020 to mid 2022 - but demand for our services grew so high (and we didn't have the funding to hire dedicated staff to man the phones) that we had to change our model so that we allocated teams of drivers to Wildlife Rescues & Vet Practices, instead of manning the phones.  (Now, members of the public can use this MAP to find their nearest Rescues and those Rescues have teams of our Drivers to send out to help, if you cannot transport.  Equally, Vet Practices use our Drivers to move wildlife patients over to Rescues, for longer term rehab, after emergency first aid has been given).  

 

No one else in the UK offers the phone service that we used to, so to still do our bit to help as many wild lives as possible (and we use the funding from this course to fund 100s of Volunteer Wildlife Drivers, nationwide) we are offering this course, so that you can all help a wild life within minutes, instead of hours/days, and hopefully celebrate the little one's rehab & release, instead of mourning their passing, as you couldn't get help fast enough.

You can check out all of the testimonials from our times manning the phones (so you can see that we really know what we're talking about and can help you to help wildlife) HERE and there are some more personal testimonials HERE.
