Wild animal rescue

Local Records Centres often get called by people wishing to help stranded or injured wild animals. In fact, we are not animal rescue organisations and can’t take in injured wildlife. If in doubt about what to do with injured wild animals or birds, the Vale Wildlife Hospital and Rehabilitation Centre website has useful advice, as do the RSPCA, other local animal sanctuaries and some local vets.

Geological data

Whilst we do keep details of some geological sites, e.g. RIGs sites, the primary geological records centre for the county is based at the Gloucestershire Geology Trust. We recommend contacting them directly for geological records and expert advice.
