What We Do
Meet the Team
Dan Goldsmith I have worked in wildlife rehabilitation since the age of 11. As long as I can remember I have been passionate about nature and conservation, and I have worked in that sector. The most rewarding feeling ever is releasing a fit and healthy animal back into the wild after making meticulous efforts to rehabilitate it. Helping with various local wildlife charities over the years I established a good friendship with Bev Cosse. Bev led the Seal and Bird Rescue Trust for 20 years and I had the pleasure of getting to know her and becoming involved with the charity. Unfortunately, Bev passed away suddenly late in 2013. Myself, along with others who Bev inspired are now taking the charity forward under the new name: 'Marine and Wildlife Rescue'. We look forward to continuing the great work that she established, and rescuing wildlife casualties throughout Norfolk.
William Talbot Living and working in the countryside and having recently graduated with a degree in Agricultural management, I have a keen interest for all things country, conservation and wildlife. From a young age I have fond memories of spending time with my grandparents, walking the marshes, checking on the cows and watching the marsh harriers. I take great pride in the knowledge of the countryside and wildlife my grandparents passed on to me. Having joined the charity in August 2019 I have have been involved in rescue call outs for seals, waterfowl, bats, and birds of prey. Every day working with the charity is different and I look forward to what each day may bring.
Dean Pinder I have been involved with the charity since 2009. Whilst volunteering I have gained a wealth of experience working with and handling captive Birds of Prey. The charity housed a number of rescued birds, bred in captivity. They were used to promote better welfare and conservation. I attend seal rescue callouts regularly in north Norfolk, including both the common and grey seal pupping seasons. I am proud to be assisting with the charity, that Bev Cosse established, knowing that we make a difference for the Wildlife we rescue in Norfolk.
Dr Elliott Simpson Whilst growing up in Rural North Norfolk, I was lucky enough to be able to volunteer at the charity (when previously known as the ‘Seal and Bird Rescue Trust’). It was here that my love of wildlife rehabilitation and birds of prey was concreted. In 2013 I completed an externship with the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital, and in 2014 I graduated from the University of Bristol in Veterinary Science, and am now studying to complete my Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice (Zoological Medicine).After 5 years of working in mixed practice, I spent most of 2019 travelling Europe and volunteering on a remote island in the Caribbean. Since returning to the UK in early 2020, I have launched my own mobile zoo, exotics and avian veterinary service across Norfolk and Suffolk (Aquila Veterinary Services Ltd); dealing with anything from camelids to kookaburras.
Marine and Wildlife Rescue provides an animal rescue service in Norfolk and north Suffolk. The registered charity was founded in 1990 to rescue both common and grey seals. It has since evolved to cater for all kinds of wildlife. We have specialist vets to tend to the animals that come into our care, and all wildlife, where possible, is returned to the wild. Our members are all voluntary and are dedicated to the cause of helping wildlife. We enjoy the work that we do and are grateful for all offered support.
