A message from The Wildheart Trust:
“Help us ensure that all our animals are cared for during Covid-19.
“These extraordinary times are threatening our cherished sanctuary. Like many smaller seasonally sensitive wildlife sanctuaries we’re highly dependant on our visitation income to enable us to pay for our overheads and fund our charitable work. An unprecedented wet February and now the Covid -19 pandemic are putting us under enormous financial stress. Our aim is to raise funds to survive the Covid-19 pandemic thereby ensuring the care of our animals and enabling future rescue missions…”
