Ducks, geese, hedgehogs, rodents, badgers, birds, deer, even snakes and foxes — for a wildlife rescuer, this is just a typical day on the job! The Wildlife Aid Foundation (WAF) in the United Kingdom is one such group that sends it’s people out on emergency wildlife calls to assess injury, collect abandoned orphaned babies, to give medical aid on-site, and to care for animals brought back to home-base.

In an uplifting video put out by the WAF, you get a taste of what it’s like to be a wildlife veterinary nurse. Watch to follow the awesome Lucy Kellis, WVN for Wildlife Aid Foundation as she rescues, protects, cleans, feeds, weens, and stitches up creatures great and small. It seems there is no animal in need turned away from nurse Lucy!
