South Essex Wildlife Hospital

Dedicated to putting ‘life’ back into the ‘wild‘, SEWH is a wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and public advice charity. We care for sick and injured wildlife and aim to release animals back into the wild.

No injured or sick animal is turned away. SEWH relies entirely on donations.

If you find a sick, injured, baby animal or bird please call us on 01375 893893 for advice on what to do. See HERE for more details.

We help thousands of birds and animals each year.
They wouldn't be alive today without your help. Even a small sum will make a big difference.

We have a hedgehog nest In our neighbours’ front garden. I have a clear view of it. Only ever seen one hedgehog though. We get lots of slugs so hopefully they are well fed. How long do they use the nest for? Is it just a summer thing or do they hibernate there too?

How cute are they, on a more serious note I really hope they survive as our hedgies are really in decline thankyou for being there to help them and all our wildlife

Cute little prickles

Plenty of room in Ss154ah in the play area with plenty of tree, shrub cover with gardens backing on area.

awww they are so cute !!!

we had another poorly badger cub arrive tonight, she is not using one of her front legs properly although nothing obvious has shown up on the x-ray. vet Tom has put her on a drip as she is quite dehydrated and refused to eat or drink. ... See MoreSee Less
