About the Book
These notes are not an exhaustive guide to wildlife rescue or a list of the risks (to the rescuer or the injured animal) but rather are intended to give an indication of what is involved and what can happen with some of the animals and birds that need our help. I have described our approach to rescuing larger animals (and birds) and included anecdotes about some of our 1,200 rescues to give a flavour of what can happen. The description of equipment needed will enable animal rescuers to be better prepared when embarking on a rescue. I do not cover what happens once the injured animal gets to the wildlife hospital or Veterinary Surgery – others have already done that better than I could.
This black and white version of this book runs to 80 pages. It is also available as a more expensive 78 page 7x7 colour publication.
Now retired Tim's hobbies include writing and photography and he has visited all seven continents. For eight years he (and his wife) were volunteers at their local wildlife hospital. Tim has worked in the motor industry, venture capital and intellectual asset management. An active member of the local U3A and other organisations. He also writes a blog in which he tries to to mix information on his journey with prostate cancer (and urology and immunethrombocytopenia) with thoughts on life in general. After all whatever is happening on the medical front, life goes on and I don’t want to be defined by my cancer (or platelet count) - see my Website Profits from any book sales (and speaker fees from talks) will go to a charity of my choice (currently Rett UK)
