East Sussex WRAS is an award winning wildlife ambulance service helping people who find sick, injured and orphaned wildlife across East Sussex.
WRAS was established as a voluntary group in 1996 but founder Trevor Weeks has been undertaking wildlife rescue and conservation work since 1985. From a one man band the organisation has slowly expanded over the years and now operates a veterinary hospital registered with the RCVS capable of taking up to 250 casualties at a time and a fleet of 5 veterinary ambulances.
The charity admitted over 2800 casualties in 2016, and provides a 24 hours emergency service operating 365 days a year. WRAS deals with catted birds, poorly hedgehogs, road casualty owls, poisoned foxes, snared badgers, shot pigeons, tackled swans, entangled deer and much more.
