Our objectives and aims revolve around the conservation and welfare of our local wildlife. Our foremost aim is the rescue, rehabilitation and release of native fauna using methods and knowledge gained from many years of experience in the field.
To this end our volunteers undertake training in the rescue and care of native wildlife. Many members involved in the care of animals have specialist expertise in the rescue and rehabilitation of particular species or groups of animals, e.g. possums/gliders, macropods, waterbirds, monotremes and flying foxes.
The group also aims to promptly and humanely relieve the suffering of animals whose injuries are so severe that they cannot be saved, with the assistance of local veterinarians and Currumbin Wildlife Hospital.
Our objectives include wildlife advocacy and providing a voice for our native wildlife. Through the increase of public awareness, we aim to encourage the protection and welfare of wildlife and their habitat. We encourage our members also to become involved in habitat enhancement in the Tweed Valley, by planting locally grown suitable species on public reserves. Leading by example and with ongoing research, we endeavour to encourage and educate members of the public to adopt improved strategies where wildlife is concerned.
