Wildlife rehabilitation: We have many years experience hand-rearing orphan birds, and dealing with orphaned and injured mammals, with the intention to release them back into the wild when they are fit and able.

 

 

Since we started in 2006 we have rescued and rehabilitated over 16,000 animals and birds. We have a 24/7 service, offering advice and assistance, and an Animal Ambulance to take us out and about when we are able

#GIVINGTUESDAY2020

Reflections on Wildlife Rescue (photo by Mike Robertson)
It’s been another busy year for The New Arc. To say it has been challenging is somewhat of an understatement. A worldwide pandemic forced us to close our shop for a substantial time, our main source of income. Fundraising events such as The Kilt Walk had to be cancelled and most challenging of all is that we have had to work with far less staff and volunteers than last year.
Despite this we have managed to take in over 1300 cases of injured and orphaned Wildlife so far this year. We have continued to operate in as normal a way as we can, in providing a 24 hour, 7 days per week service, offering help, advice and assistance day and night. We have continued to improve the facilities at the centre and have now completed the building of our specialist Wildlife Hospital and are only awaiting ‘Building Warrant’ approval.
We are now busy furnishing the Hospital with all the equipment and specialised caging required to cater for the huge variety of Wildlife we have to accommodate at any given moment.
Please help us pass the finishing line and get our Wildlife Hospital open and saving lives.

THE NEW ARC

We took in an injured Buzzard last week, which had become impaled in the grill of a car. Mintlaw Police kindly brought the bird over to us for assessment, but sadly he was far too badly injured and was euthanised. However, the poor Buzzard did have a ring on his leg, and we reported the details to the BTO.
Today we received the information that he was rung on 6th June 1996 at Kemnay (making him 24 years old!). Such a sad end but a long life, and no doubt he fathered many chicks to continue his genes

EDIT : Details from RSPB which is very interesting
Breeding success depends largely on a good food supply and a lack of interference from humans, either illegal or accidental. Human interference causes up to half of nest failures. Three quarters of young buzzards die, mostly from starvation, before they mature at three years old. Those that reach breeding age have an average life span of around eight years. The oldest wild buzzard known was 25 years 4 months old.
