RUTLAND WILDLIFE SANCTUARY
.... based at
Rutland Wildlife Sanctuary was a natural progression to develop and extend the work of the Centre, initially catering for injured Wildlife from the immediate area.
Whenever possible, rescued birds and animals continue to be released back into the wild in consultation with the Centres Veterinary Support.
RWS is not open to the public as injured birds and animals require a degree of solitude in-order to recover from trauma or surgery.
Others looking to be released back into the wild, benefit from a period of quiet readjustment.

The Amur Leopard (Panthera pardus orientalis) has been classified as critically endangered with a population of approximately only 35 left in the wild.
The are sparsely distributed across Russia, China and possibly Korea and their population is still in decline, threatened by increasing damage to their habitat by deforestation and excessive tree-logging.
We have three Amur Leopards at the centre which have been rehomed form various locations around the United Kingdom.
It is our aim to raise funds for the plight of the wild Amur Leopard through holding these open days.
Ticket holders will be guided around the enclosures and can find out more about these majestic creatures.
