The aims of HWRT are to rescue, repair, rehabilitate and release all native species of wild birds and mammals.
Help is needed with hand rearing, cleaning and feeding, maintenance and construction work. We are also keen to monitor the casualties after release. Some groups of birds will be ringed, and hopefully some species will be radio-tracked.
