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

Another roofer help needed please this time in rothiemay
Urgent need for a very long ladder (window cleaner?) to rescue jackdaw from behind mesh at Rothiemay Church. Appears to have got through small hole in wooden slats from nest when younger and now been there about a week and thought to be too large to get back through. Parents visiting but no food being seen and no access to water. Church has given permission for rescue and New Arc aware. Anyone able to assist please? Photo shows height above ground - in circle of stones above window. With thanks

Wonder if there are any slaters/ roofers / builders in the cults area of Aberdeen who have a ladder which could reach a dormer window roof where a young oystercatcher needs help? If you can help please call us on 07962253867 ...
