Help Our Wildlife in The Land Down Under
Supporting Australian Flora and Fauna
If you come across injured or sick wildlife, before you do anything, you should contact an animal welfare group to find out the best course of action to take for the type of wildlife that you have found.
While you are waiting to get advice, keep the animal warm and in a dark and quiet place, only handle it as absolutely necessary and do not give it food or water unless advised by the carer and keep pets away.
*If you are part of an organisation that is dedicated to the welfare of Australian Flora and/or Fauna, please send your contact details and a brief on what it is that you do for consideration of placement on this page.
