PBMS welcomes 'Secret World Wildlife Rescue' as contributor to scheme

The Predatory Bird Monitoring Scheme (PBMS) is always looking to develop new links with organisations that may be able to help us monitor the levels pollutants in birds of prey and so we are pleased to announce that Secret World Wildlife Rescue (http://www.secretworld.org/) has agreed to submit birds to the scheme.

Secret World Wildlife Rescue operates a rescue, rehabilitation and release programme for injured birds and mammals in Somerset that deals with over 5000 cases per year. Laura Benfield, Head of Animal Care Services at Secret World, tells us “Our aim is to rehabilitate and release back to the wild as many birds and mammals as we can. Unfortunately sometimes an animal’s injuries are so severe that it is unable to recover”

However as Lee Walker of the PBMS explains “By submitting dead raptors to the scheme, Secret World, and all our contributors, help us better understand the risks that pollutants may pose to these species and the environment we share with them.”

If you operate a raptor rehabilitation centre and think that you may be able to help by submitting raptor carcasses to the PBMS then please contact us.
