The Global Wildlife Rescue Project came into life in October 2019 after a eureka moment our founding Chair had whilst on holiday in Costa Rica. It was set up by a group of friends who are passionate about wildlife and protecting the natural world. We come from a background of working in animal rescue and conservation – frustrated by seeing wildlife come to harm from avoidable circumstances we have decided to do something about it.
Wildlife is all around us – whether it’s a curious fox exploring an inner city garden, an eagle soaring overhead looking for its next meal, a herd of impala grazing on African plains or a three-toed sloth taking it easy in the branches of a cecropia tree. No matter where in the world you are – open your eyes and you will see wildlife all around you.
Whatever the wildlife is that you see around you – the chances are that their ancestors were here on this land well before yours were. They have as much right to live on this land as we do.
