More details

Two years after establishing a specialist Wildlife Information Bureau and Fox Deterrence Consultancy in 1991, The Fox Project incorporated a Wildlife Hospital that, today, admits and treats around 700 foxes per year.  We appear regularly on both UK and international media, have received awards from RSPCA, International Fund for Animal Welfare, media and TV and are honoured to have Chris Packham as our Patron.

The Wildlife Information Bureau advises national and local government and provides information to the public on all aspects of the Red Fox.  Its establishment was in response to a need for science-based information on a species previously misrepresented and misunderstood.

 

Our Fox Deterrence Consultancy is utilised by almost all UK local authorities and promotes effective and well-researched non-lethal responses to conflict between man and foxes, co-ordinating and working with specialist professional consultancies across the UK.  Its establishment was designed to provide a humane alternative to old-fashioned ‘pest control’, whereby animals are pointlessly killed, usually at high cost to householders, businesses, etc., only to be - very predictably - replaced within days or weeks by other members of a self-regulating species that has never been controlled by man.

 

The Wildlife Ambulance Service operates primarily in the South East, dealing with sick and injured foxes and abandoned fox cubs and incorporating a large team of volunteer rescuers and fosterers to provide for their care, treatment and rehabilitation back into the wild.  Our policies, in line with those of ‘trade’ associations such as British Wildlife Rehabilitation Council and in conjunction with numerous allied rescue groups across the UK, is for recovered adult animals to be returned to their home territory and for controlled rehabilitation of hand-raised fox cubs re-entering the wild with the support and involvement of sympathetic farmers, smallholders and rural landowners.
