Only days old on the 14th May Millie the kestrel was found in St Saviours only days only with her fluffy feathers and no parents in site.

With no nest to or parents in site and far to young to be out of the nest she was rushed to the GSPCA where she has spent a number of weeks in an intensive care unit being hand fed from early in the morning until late at night.

Jake makes nest boxes during lockdown to raise funds for the GSPCA while helping nature

Submitted by Steve on 19:26, 21st May, 2020 | 0

It has been amazing to see such incredible ways supporters of the GSPCA and animals have been inventing all sorts of ways to raise funds for the animals at the GSPCA and the 1000’s we help every year during the Covid-19 pandemic.

9 year old Jake Hardill during lockdown has been kept busy not just with his home schooling but also making home made nest boxes for wild birds which he has been selling to raise funds for the GSPCA.

First babies of 2020 born at the GSPCA

Submitted by Steve on 11:35, 23rd Apr, 2020 | 0

Today we have seen the first birth of 2020 at the GSPCA and we are delighted to say mum is a hedgehog.

As wonderful as this news is, it marks a time where we need to take extra care when out in the garden as others may have already been born and others will be due in the coming weeks.

Last year at the GSPCA we saw the highest number of hedgehogs come into our care in our history. An amazing 618 were rescued or born at the GSPCA and we have already seen 80 since the beginning of 2020, another record number.

HAPPY NEWS – Andrew doing well and soon to have a new friend

Submitted by Steve on 11:33, 10th Apr, 2020 | 0

We are pleased to say that Andrew the Jersey grey seal pup rescued over a year ago is nearly ready for the wild but we have one last step to go.

We are hoping when Pebbles the seal pup is ready to introduce them both so they can be released together.

Sadly due to the Coronavirus restrictions it is highly unlikely that we will be able to take a boat to Jersey to release Andrew where he was from with the social distancing rules in both islands.

HAPPY NEWS – Pebble the seal pup moves out into the Spring sunshine

Submitted by Steve on 11:28, 10th Apr, 2020 | 0

On the 13th February the GSPCA team were called out to a very poorly seal pup we named Pebbles and we have some great news as she is doing extremely well.

We were all so worried for her when she first arrived and she required around the clock intensive care, but each day she has improved and this week she got her first taste of the outdoors since arriving.

At only 2-3 months of age she is now eating fish well and we are all so pleased with her progress.

Today is #WorldWildlifeDay and with over 2000 wild animals through the GSPCA doors every year we need your support with our proposed new Wildlife Hospital and wildlife in our care.

It’s really easy to donate by going to www.paypal.me/DonateGSPCA   

The much needed facility is planned to replace a number of old buildings some which date back to the 1940’s.

Last year the GSPCA received initial planning for the much needed facility and we continue to fundraise for the facility and work on the plans.

Crash one of the smallest ever grey seal pups and first of the season rescued now at the GSPCA

Submitted by Steve on 20:30, 5th Dec, 2019 | 0

Earlier today our Animal Collection Officer and GSPCA Head of Marine Mammals Geoff George was rescued a 2-3 day old Grey seal Pup from Grandes Rocques.

The very emaciated and poorly pup was nearly a quarter of the weight he should be for his age with no mother in sight.

At only 12kgs if the pup hadn’t been rescued it would have surely perished on our West Coast.

‘Crash’ as the young pup has been named is now receiving around the clock intensive care as it will need fluids and rehydration every 2 hours 24/7 to stablise it.

Over the last two months the GSPCA has both been extremely busy with an abundance of hedgehogs needing rescue and our care as well as those being ready to released to the wild.

Some of those being released back to the wild were hand rears from 2018 and last month one of the largest groups were released.

Maggie the very lucky oiled kestrels broken wing pinned - help donate to our much needed Wildlife Hospital

Submitted by Steve on 14:30, 1st Jun, 2019 | 0

Earlier this week a kestrel was rescued in St Martins near Magnoila Tree Café.

The very poorly bird was barely moving with her head tucked under her wing which was hanging low covered in an oily substance.

The GSPCA rushed her to Isabelle Vets who on x-raying discovered a break as well as needing specialised bathing.
