Caring for Injured and Orphaned Wildlife

Most injured or orphaned native animals are victims of vehicle or window collisions, dog or cat attack, trapping, shooting or electrocution. The goal is to relieve the stress of these unfortunate animals and ideally to rehabilitate them back to the wild in a fit condition.

The Department of Primary Industries and Water web site provides information on caring for injured and orphaned wildlife.

A dedicated pool of trained wildlife carers is available to ensure that the injured or orphaned animal has the best chance of survival. You are welcome to enquire about becoming a wildlife carer. Contact the number below.

For assistance during business hours and out of hours, please ring 61654305 to receive instructions via a recorded message or contact your nearest Parks and Wildlife Service office.
