Hessilhead Wildlife Rescue is situated near Beith in North Ayrshire. It occupies a 20 acre site, including woodland, marsh and open water. This gives a variety of release sites for our patients.

We aim to rescue, treat, rehabilitate and release birds and animals back to the wild, and we have the facilities and experience to treat all species of Scottish wildlife.

Resources at the centre include an intensive care unit, a swan/seal hospital with indoor pool, a hedgehog unit, a surgery and more than 60 outdoor aviaries, enclosures and release pens.

The centre has a 24hr emergency service, and is available to give advice on wildlife problems throughout the day.

Our site is currently undergoing maintenance. Meanwhile you can also find us on Facebook at Hessilhead Wildlife Rescue, or read our latest Facebook posts right here...
