PAST EVENTS

24th November 2017

Our volunteer, Margaret, organised a London Wildlife Protection stall at the recent Leyton Orient Trust older adults monthly network event which included a talk about wildlife and the ways we can help. Waltham Forest Council and the Leyton Orient Trust set up this event and invited local groups to give a two minute talk about their service or charity to give older residents, many of who are retired, the opportunity to find out about groups and activities and to encourage them to maintain a social and active life.

 

Margaret spoke to 80 people who were in attendance, and handed them London Wildlife Protection leaflets before the talk itself. She spoke about the popular misconception that humans get diseases and illnesses from handling birds and went on to introduce the work we do. We hope that, thanks to educational work and talks, people will become more vigilant in noticing birds and animals in need of help and will be aware what to do.


Our volunteer, Chris, starred in the All 4 Vet on the Hill episode when LWP was called to collect two adorable baby pigeons. A lovely, educational and inspirational episode which reminded everyone that our wildlife matters and comes in many forms and sizes.


London Wildlife Protection on Lush Charity Pot 

Friday 22 - Sunday 24 September 175-179 Oxford St, Soho, London W1D 2JS

 

London Wildlife Protection has been invited to the Lush Charity Pot 3 day event. Lush offers grants and funding to small, grassroots charities and campaign groups that are often best placed to make a real difference with limited resources. They support such organisations around the world that are working in the areas of animal protection, the environment , and human rights. The majority of the funding is allocated to smaller groups who struggle to find funding elsewhere. Come and join us for this amazing opportunity to raise much needed funds that will help many injured, sick and orphaned birds and animals.



LWP members oversee release of birds

6-Sep-17 

 

Birds trapped by wire mesh installed by Network Rail and left to die, were released today after LWP volunteers spotted them. They watched throughout the operation to ensure that the birds that had survived, were freed and unharmed.

 

Network rail should review their policy, as they kill many birds through illegally closing the escape routes of birds in this way. 

 

The contractors carrying out the work yesterday were very helpful and considerate, and LWP would like to offer them its sincere thanks for the their efforts.
