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   

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.

With just over £120,000 pledged or raised currently there is still a long way to the £900,000 required to build the GSPCA Wildlife Hospital.

There are a number of ways you can help donate to this much needed project –

Larger donors or corporates may want to make a larger donation and become an Exclusive Build Partner and to find out more please visit -

We have yet to go to tender for the build which is the next step after we have worked further on the plans to get exact costs but for those wanting to help in much larger ways here are the estimated costs for some of the facilities that make up the £900,000 –

Glazing to whole build £50-60,000

Each rehabilitation room £45,000

Central feed kitchen £35,000

Each marine rehabilitation room £50,000

Rehabilitation Pool – to be confirmed

Rehabilitation aviaries/pens - £15-20,000 each

Receiving office where the public can drop animals off and they can be admitted and entered into the system - £25-30,000

With 2 seals currently at the GSPCA and over 100 hedgehogs, not to mention many other injured birds and wild rabbits you would think the GSPCA is extremely busy and you would be correct.

Saying this Spring is fast approaching and that means the numbers of animals to come into the care of the Shelter is increasing daily.

The new Wildlife Hospital will help house over 2000 wild animals and birds each year and with our natural environment a major concern a facility that would help benefit future generations.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “Today is #WorldWildlifeDay and we help over 2000 wild animals through our doors at the GSPCA every year.”

“With 2 seal pups, over 100 hedgehogs, many wild birds and a wild rabbits our facilities are always full with Guernsey wildlife that are found sick or injured.”

“There are many ways to support our Wildlife Hospital from a donation to buying a brick.”

“Pebbles the most recent seal pup rescued on the West Coast is doing well after 2 weeks of care and Andrew the seal pup will hopefully be back in the wild very soon.”

“If anyone would like to know more or support our wildlife hospital in any way please do give us a call on 257261 or email [email protected] .”
