Caring For Wildlife

I trained as a wildlife carer 20 years ago and have completed a number of specialist courses since then.
The aim of being a trained, licenced wildlife carer is to rescue, rehabilitate and release.

If you find a native bird or animal that has been injured:
1) Remove any threat to the animals e.g. dogs and cats
2) Minimise stress by placing a towel or cover over the animal and gently
    place it in a box. Put the box in a warm, quiet, dark room.
3) Call the local wildlife group who will send a trained, licenced
    volunteer rescuer.
For information on your local wildlife group anywhere in Australia go to
