We fund wildlife projects & hedgehogs to save animals all over the world


Shepreth Wildlife Park first started as a private sanctuary in 1979, when a young injured jackdaw was homed and rehabilitated. ‘Jack’ soon recovered and become one of the family. Others followed Jack, and those that could not be released back into the wild lived out their life in the sanctuary. Eventually it was opened up to the public in 1984 and, back then, known as Willers Mill Wild Animal Sanctuary.

Today, Shepreth Wildlife Park is still passionate about conservation and raising awareness and funds for wildlife worldwide. Alongside the charity, Shepreth Wildlife Park has donated over £160,000 to conservation projects around the world and participates in international breeding programmes for endangered species.

The Shepreth Wildlife Conservation Charity (SWCC) was then founded to develop the existing Hedgehog Hospital. It was also set up to grow the wider conservation activities, raising greater funds and building more awareness of endangered species – to help save the world’s wildlife. After all, this is our planet, so it’s our responsibility to look after it and all the species we share it with.

About the charity

Shepreth Wildlife Conservation Charity was established in 2011 to help fundraise for important work both home and abroad. The organisation raises funds and educates visitors about species which are threatened with extinction, and also plays a major role in funding the Shepreth Hedgehog Hospital.
