Each time we rehabilitate an orphaned cub, it costs in the region of £3,000 per animal from point of care to release back into the wild. We rely completely on donations and fundraising, so if you feel you’re able to help us continue this valuable work with an iconic species, we would really appreciate your support.  

We are always looking for people to get involved with fundraising for us, download our fundraising pack below for more information or email our fundraising team on
