A team of wildlife rescuers have been busy helping to keep animals in Croxley safe from harm.
CW Wildlife Rescue moved to Rickmansworth six months ago and has been rescuing animals in the local area since.
Chris Wicks and the team have helped a variety of animals across the Croxley area, including a pair of fox cubs who were found lost on a road in Croxley.
After spending some time at the centre, the team were able to safely release the cubs, following the rescue centre’s method of ‘rescue, rehabilitate and release’.
Chris said the centre has a range of volunteers from Croxley, both young and old and hopes to encourage more young people to get involved.
He said: “We are also starting to work with local schools and are trying to set up a wildlife club for young people.
“I think it is important for the future for them to get involved.”
Chris added that he has noticed the benefits of working with animals on people’s mental health.
He said: “There is definitely a link between working with the animals and mental health. We would like to set up something to continue this.
“I have noticed in our volunteers, how working with the animals has really helped them.”
Chris said that in order to keep going, the centre needs donations from the public.
He said: “It’s more of a vocation than a job and relies on public donations but the people round have been really amazing and that keeps my chin up.”
