Sick or injured wildlife

Council is proud to support the below wildlife rescue/care groups and facilities through the Environment Levy. These groups can also be contacted directly for assistance with sick, injured or orphaned wildlife.

Consider your own safety first when tending to a wild animal. Learn more about helping injured wildlife including handling and transporting injured animals. Never handle flying-foxes or bats (see below). Only registered wildlife carers are permitted to keep, raise or rehabilitate native wildlife.
