Anne Brummer, trustee and founder of Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue and CEO of Dr Brian May's Save Me Trust receives a national award for Services to Wildlife. Congratulations to our CEO, Anne Brummer who has won the prestigious Animal Hero Award 2018 for services to wildlife. Dr Brian May said: I can’t give you a full impression of what Anne Brummer does in a few moments. All I can say is that she has benefitted wildlife in this country for a few years now” Anne and Brian’s dynamic partnership began with the release of foxes and Badgers on the grounds of Brian’s estate - that has now become a forever home for wildlife. The chance discovery of a hedgehog trapped in wire fencing has led to radical changes in the life of Anne Brummer and the thousands of wild animals she now helps heal and get back to the wild every year.
