Wildlife Rehabilitation & Teaching Hospital
- Help us Build a Hospital for Ireland’s Wildlife
Wildlife Rehabilitation Ireland (WRI) is organising this fundraiser
Wildlife Rehabilitation Ireland is appealing to you to help us build a Hospital for Ireland’s wildlife.
In 2022 there is still no permanent dedicated Wildlife Hospital in Ireland.
Creating an interim hospital in 2021 not only allowed us to return recovered wildlife to where they belong, but also to demonstrate the need for wildlife rehabilitation on this scale. By inviting government members to visit the site in Navan we were able to show them the incredible conservation work being done which resulted in two parliamentary questions being raised on our behalf and a small amount of funding at the end of the year. But not nearly enough.
We Need Your Help
Now we need your help. We need it because Ireland’s wildlife is in trouble, many species are struggling to survive, some are becoming extinct. The wildlife we have need all the help we can give.
The Immediate Tasks
We need to refurbish existing structures to tide us over so we can begin to accept animals. As we do this we plan to build the main Wildlife Rehabilitation & Teaching Hospital concurrently. We need immediate financial help and also building, joinery, plumbing and electrical volunteers to help get this up and running.
A benefit to Irish society as a whole
Because volunteering to help animals in a natural setting is a proven way of promoting social, psychological, spiritual and physical well-being, young and vulnerable groups in Irish society will have an opportunity to volunteer with us.
With that aim WRI, invites organisations that empower the young and the at-risk groups in our society to collaborate with the Wildlife Hospital by forming a social partnership with WRI, a partnership that will benefit Irish society as a whole and Irish wildlife greatly.
The nitty gritty
We need €90,000 to build this latest interim hospital but the estimated cost of the full build of the Wildlife Rehabilitation & Teaching Hospital and Education Centre project is expected to be closer to €3million. Being open to the public for walks and talks, the Hospital is expected to be self-funding in a short time frame.
