Nescot’s Animal Studies learners were treated to a talk from local rescue centre WildLife Aid on Monday 13th June. Dr Mike Berwick and Sue Peters visited the college to tell the students a little about the WildLife Aid and what they do.
The Leatherhead-based foundation, which operates 365 days per year, treats and rehabilitates all animals free of charge, as Sue Perkins, one of the volunteers at the centre, explained: “We’ll take in and look after any British wildlife and then release them back into the wild once they are well enough.”
Sue and Mike also introduced the learners to a three-legged toad, one of the animals currently being rehabilitated by the centre, which several of the students were able to hold.
The foundation visits local colleges and schools regularly to give talks and offer information to students about what they can do to help local wildlife.
