South Essex Wildlife Hospital


Dedicated to putting life back into the wild, SEWH is a wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and public advice charity. They care for sick and injured wildlife and aim to release animals back into the wild. No injured or sick animal is turned away, staffed only by dedicated volunteers. SEWH relies entirely on donations. We deal with ALL injured, orphaned or sick wildlife, including foxes, badgers, hedgehogs, squirrels, deer, swans, ducks, geese and any other birds, frogs, toads, lizards, snakes. Our hospital is based just outside the village of Orsett, Essex. We do not normally deal with domestic or farm animals but will offer help and advice where we are able to. If you find a sick, injured, baby animal or bird please call us on 01375 893893 for advice on what to do.
