Rescue - Rehabilitate - Release
With our specially equipped one of a kind wildlife ambulance we can rescue injured, sick and trapped wildlife. As well as attending to calls from the public we also assist the emergency services in animal rescues.
At the sanctuary we can provide assessment and medical treatment in our bespoke hospital unit. We have dedicated pens for all manner of species to recovery in and prepare for release back into the wild.
We have a dedicated team of volunteers which help with the running of the sanctuary. We pride ourselves in achieving the highest standard of welfare and were featured as best practice representatives for the Parliamentary Review in 2020.
We are fully trained to provide care for all wild birds and animals and are supported by a registered veterinary surgeon.
Geoff Grewcock was born in 1950 and has spent almost all of his adult life in Nuneaton. He worked for 25 years as a cash in transit driver when he suffered a terrible accident at work which resulted in him not being able to continue employment. After being awarded the damages, Geoff had to make a decision about his future. He saw an opportunity to plough the money into something worth while and fulfil a lifelong passion to care for animals. And so the idea of the sanctuary was born.
In February 2001 Geoff took the plunge to dedicate his life to rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing sick, injured and abandoned wildlife and set about building the foundations of the Nuneaton & Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary. A few years later this would become a registered charity.
By 2020, as Geoff celebrated his 70th birthday he had rescued over 90 thousand birds and animals and educated thousands of children and adults on wildlife care.
Geoff cares for the wildlife 24/7, with no days off and no pay.
It is true to say that
