    The Littlest Wildlife Hotel was set up by Nikki Rule-Jackson in 2019, it rapidly became used by local people who found injured and orphaned animals, by 2020 it was rescuing animals from a wider area in Cornwall and ended the year with 40 hedgehogs, 8 pigeons and 4 collared doves.

    This was the absolute capacity on the number of animals that could be rescued, despite there being more that needed help, there was genuinely no room at the inn.

    There has been media interest since a post on Facebook in January 2021 went viral and BBC Radio Cornwall interviewed Nikki regarding the post requesting birds nests to be made for the forthcoming baby season 2021. Fortunately, the public have taken this to heart during the 3rd lockdown within a year due to the Covid 19 pandemic, and the response has been amazing.

    I think that I may get more animals this year and I’d like to have the space and not turn anyone away. So I’d really like your support to make this happen and help more wildlife.

    More interest in the hotel happened after a short film of Nikki and the Littlest Wildlife Hotel appeared on the BBC 1 television show The One Show (26/5/21).

      Thank you for alll your support and your donations, they really do mean the world to us and enable us to continue giving the wildlife the care that they deserve. If you can, please think about creating a monthly donation. Then we are able to have your support monthly, if alll bills are accounted for it will allow us to go back to the business of looking after the animals instead of worrying about how we are going to continue to run and pay for the electricity given the recent hikes in energy and fuel!

      Since moving to North Devon, I have secured a larger building on my property that is going to house the new rescue. This includes a larger number of Exotic Hedgehogs. I've commissioned the building of 3 aviaries, which can be added to as and when we have the funds. The cost for the all 3 to be built is £2900, which is what we as a collective have raised to date. This gives us a further target to aim towards (as well as having to purchase the usual food supplies) in order to purchase more incubators and medication - which is an essential!!

      Hi Nikki, We met just beyond the bridge in Alswear when we were stuck in traffic. I've been meaning to make a donation to your fabulous work ever since. This in memory of Tweety-Pie (RIP)
