Location

Situation

For 14 years Hart Wildlife Rescue has been run from the ground floor, basement and garden of a private home, and sadly often had to turn away species we did not have space or facilities for. As the only wildlife centre of its kind in Hampshire, proper accommodation has been desperately needed. We now have signed a 20 year lease on a barn conversion and 1 acre field in North East Hampshire. The barn is being altered to provide a treatment room, an isolation room, 2 recovery rooms, as well as food preparation space, utility room, reception, an office and staff area and storage space. The field will have recovery facilities for large mammals, birds of prey, small birds and water birds, including aviaries and ponds, as well as wildlife areas. The cost for the building work is estimated at £60,000, with a further £10,000 to be spent on equipment. The aviaries, small buildings and other work in the field is estimated at a further £20,000. Whilst much of this money has already been raised through general fundraising and our two shops, we are looking for donations, big or small, to support us with this project, and also towards running costs for the charity in the future, which are forecast to be in the region of £90,000 per year for the first 3 years.
