We don’t expect to get young mammals in at this time of year but these two young rabbits have come into care from Burgess Hill, after being found wandering around on a nature reserve. Luckily they are both in good condition but too young to be out and so exposed. They are not with our orphan carer Nicky. Rabbits can breed all year round, but it is still unusual to have them coming into care during the winter.

Trevor started undertaking wildlife rescue and conservation work in 1985 when just 13 years old, and his life has been dedicated to the care of wildlife ever since. East Sussex Wildlife Rescue was established as a voluntary group in 1996 and became a registered charity in 2005. WRAS now has four veterinary ambulances and a Casualty Care Centre on the A22 between Hailsham and Uckfield capable of looking after up to 200 casualties at a time. The charity is primarily run by volunteers and relies of donations to fund its award winning life saving service.
