We’re lucky in Scotland. It’s a beautiful country with an abundance of wildlife.

From otters to owls, swans to seals and badgers to beavers, we’re blessed with a rich, diverse range of wild animals.

As we see thousands of wild animals come through the doors of our National Wildlife Rescue Centre, we appreciate more than most the need to respect and nurture the natural world to help wild animals thrive.

Here, you’ll find all the information you need on Scottish wildlife – and guidance on when an animal might need our help.
