The Hospital accepts any bird in need of care, land or sea, to heal and return them to the wild.
If this not possible and they take kindly to captivity then they are given sanctuary for the rest of their lives.
Those beyond help are painlessly destroyed. During each year approximately 1,500 birds are treated at the Hospital. Plus, on average 100 permanent residents. We have 4 full time members of staff caring for the birds 365 days of the year in the same tradition as Pog and Dorothy.
We are open daily to visitors and admission is free although a donation, no matter how small, is always welcome.
Without the help of a caring and sympathetic public we could not keep this much needed Hospital OPEN.
Mousehole is a pictureque little fishing port just outside Penzance.
The easiest route is to take the promenade road through Penzance
which in turn takes you past Newlyn harbour and on to Mousehole.
