Native animal rescue and information
What to do
If you find an injured or orphaned native animal, call a wildlife rescue organization straight away:
- includes Special Emergency Advice for injured or entangled flying foxes or bats, and snakes
- Handle the animal as little as possible to minimize stress.
- Remove any threat to the animal. Keep cats and dogs away.
- Place a towel or blanket over the animal and gently place it in a box (cover the top) if it is safe to do so. Put the box in a warm, quiet, dark room.
Volunteers from wildlife organizations are specially trained to look after various native animals including birds and reptiles. They will look after the animal until it is ready to be returned to the wild. It is against the law to keep native animals taken from the wild.
