Our Wildlife rescue and rehabilitation group have been looking after the wildlife in the Tweed Shire for over thirty years. We work 365 days a year with our hotline open 24 hours.

Thanks to your support, we:

  • Run a 24-hour hotline that takes 4,500 calls every year
  • Subsidise the fuel costs of our rescuers who drive all over the shire daily
  • Subsidise the food costs of the 1,500 wildlife in care that we return to the wild every year
  • Raise community awareness on world environment day, providing the public with flyers, joining information and wildlife facts
  • Provide and update member training for specific species groups and hold new member orientation several times a year, ensuring that correct rescue procedures are followed

Your donations assist our group to expand and help more animals and birds

  • We can cover the costs of purchasing state-of-the-art equipment to rescue more wildlife
  • Donations help to cover the ongoing rehabilitation expenses such as food and subsidised transport costs
  • We can train more volunteer carers and provide them with enclosures and equipment which reduces overcrowding and improves rehabilitation outcomes
  • We can provide and maintain more road signs, fishing area billboards and advertising which helps to raise community wildlife awareness and reduce fatalities and injuries
