|Dates for your Diary|
|Wed Jul 21st||Folly Wildlife Hospital|
Each year some 3500 injured, orphaned, sick or distressed wild animals and birds are admitted to our centre in Broadwater Forest, Tunbridge Wells, where they receive expert care and veterinary treatment. A very few have fallen from nests in high winds, or are the survivors of attack or predation by other wild animals, but by far, the vast majority are the victims of human activity - road traffic accidents, entanglement in netting, fishing line and fish hooks, nest destruction, poisoning, burning, immersion in or ingestion of chemicals and attack by domestic cats and dogs are just a few of the incidents we deal with.
A large part of our work at Folly involves caring for young animals and birds, from baby badgers, to day-old sparrows and even tiny goldcrests, that have been orphaned or separated from their parents.
