Yorkshire Swan Rescue Hospital
Email from the Yorkshire Swan Rescue Hospital:
We are Yorkshire Swan Rescue Hospital, a registered charity run by volunteers and operate a 24-hour wildlife hospital and rescue service, throughout Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Lancashire and Cleveland.
Swans are subject to many horrific injuries, such as discarded fishing tackle, power cable collissions, lead poisoning, deliberate cruelty such as shooting and stoning, crash landing on roads and railway tracks, fuel spillages, attacks by dogs and destruction of their habitat to name but a few.
The incidents our volunteers are called to our nothing short of horrific, and we are called to respond by many other charities and organisations such as local Police forces, councils, park rangers, the Environment Agency, British Waterways, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) and encouraginly, the National Swan Sanctuary in Surrey.
While rescuing a swan in Crewe with a broken wing last week, a canal boat owner suggested we contact you, to possibly run an article about the work we do, in order to make canal users more knowlegeable about what happens to these birds and more importantly to make them aware of our contact details should they need to report an injured swan. We regard boat users as the eyes and ears of the waterways, and they are always more than helpful when trying to rescue a swan and always have the kindness to report injuried birds.
I am able to supply pictures should you so wish etc for an article, and we would be very greatful if you were able to make some space available for us and the swans in your magazine. Please do not hesiate to contact me on 07763424892, otherwise please get in touch via email, and i'd be more than happy to discuss it with you.
Thanks very much for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you.
