LIME sponsors hotline

| 30/06/2009

(CNS): Continued development on the island has resulted in an increase in wildlife issues and the Wildlife Emergency Hotline 917-BIRD(2473) is needed more than ever. Alison Corbett of Cayman Wildlife Rescue, who is Project Manager for the hotline, said, “We are receiving more calls on 917-BIRD than ever before. So far in 2009 our call volume on the Hotline has gone up 160%.” To help CWS run this much needed service, LIME has renewed its sponsorship of the hotline.

“This LIME sponsored Hotline is a lifeline for wildlife in trouble, providing the public with 24/7 support for wildlife in crisis,” Corbett said.

This sponsorship also coincides with LIME’s new commitment to the environment. Tony Ritch, Country Manager, LIME Cayman Islands, stated “I am pleased that as a company we can provide support for this organization to continue their very important task of saving Cayman Wildlife for future generations.”

Cayman Wildlife Rescue is a programme of the National Trust for the Cayman Islands, tasked with the rescue of sick, injured and orphaned wildlife for release back into the wild. It is financed by donations from the public and staffed entirely by volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Alison Corbett at caymanwildliferescue@gmail.com. For more information you can also visit www.caymanwildliferescue.org.

What to do if you find injured wildlife – Call 917-BIRD(2473) for all wildlife emergencies. Cayman Wildlife Rescue has a team of experienced and trained volunteers ready to assist in wildlife emergencies. The public are reminded to NEVER attempt to care for a wildlife animal themselves as they required special diets and veterinary care.
