GSPCA concerned for the welfare of wildlife in the hot weather and pond advice

Submitted by Steve on 10:55, 12th Aug, 2022 | 0

The GSPCA has been highlighting the challenges of the current hot weather on our wildlife and every day rescuing animals suffering from the lack of food and water, as well as those sick and injured.

The GSPCA is also aware that many of our ponds around the island which are homes to an array of wildlife are suffering due to the lack of rain.

One of the main public ponds is that of the one in Saumarez Park which is at a very low level and has become extremely green due to algae and there has been sadly a number of dead wildlife been found in and around the pond.


WARNING HOT WEATHER - Animals in hot cars, why you shouldn’t walk your dog on a hot day & help the wildlife

Submitted by Steve on 11:33, 11th Aug, 2022 | 0

With hot weather the GSPCA has been extremely busy with calls and reports from the public from dogs locked in cars, dogs being walked on hot pavements, animals in direct sunlight, wildlife in need and we want to remind all pet owners of the real dangers to their pets and how you can help wildlife.

With the extreme warm weather and direct sunlight, dogs and other animals whether in cars or their pens are potentially in a situation where you could kill your pet if it is left, regardless of the situation.


Charlie the Senegal Parrot reunited after being missing for 7 years

Submitted by Steve on 11:14, 11th Aug, 2022 | 0

Over 6 weeks ago a Senegal Parrot was found in Vazon.

The very friendly adult Senegal Parrot arrived on the 25th June after being rescued by a member of the public and the GSPCA team were really shocked that an owner hadn’t come forward so we did a big appeal last week.

What happened next was a real surprise as an owner did come forward but she had reported her Charlie the Senegal Parrot missing in October 2015.

Yesterday the GSPCA were called out to a car park near the back of the airport.

The call was originally for a toad but when we arrived we were faced with a large black lizard.

After a little confusion of what species the lizard was it was cleared up by the owner who had been looking for their missing lizard for over 6 weeks.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “There was a little confusion over the species of the stray lizard we had in yesterday, but thankfully the owner came forward.”

“The lovely black lizard is a chuckwalla and had been missing for 6 weeks.”
