When to use anti-inflamatories

When wildlife is injured, we often have to deliberate whether to use anti-inflammatories or not.

Inflammation is the second stage of healing and begins right after the injury when the wounded blood vessels leak transudate (water, salt and protein) causing localised swelling.

Hands-on Assistance

Hands-on skills would be also greatly appreciated such as construction skills (e.g. building pens), technology (e.g. making cards, sharing information), the arts (e.g. photography, film making), tailoring (e.g. sewing animal bags, making burrow flaps, making items for sale), domestic duties (manning stalls), animal husbandry (cleaning enclosures), conservation work, marketing, as well as work on the field.

Because of licensing regulations and duty of care, we need interested persons to have working with children accreditation, character references and to demonstrate a willingness to acquire new skills.
