What can you do?
The two most effective ways in which you can help wildlife carers to undertake this important work are:
  • Volunteer with your local wildlife group.
    Almost all wildlife care is done by unpaid volunteers. While the number of native animals needing help is increasing, volunteer numbers are not keeping up.  Most groups provide training if you want to help with hands-on care. All groups also need support volunteers to help with administration, fundraising and other duties, which free up the carers to focus on their rescue and rehabilitation work.
  • Donate
    There are many expenses associated with wildlife care, and for the most part there is no government funding. Donations help us to buy food, medication, cages, nest boxes and other materials needed to carry out our work, We encourage people to donate to the wildlife group in their local area.
     
What can I do right now?

If you can't find someone local using this site, contact your local council, veterinarian or national parks office to ask who does wildlife rescues in your area. Many have websites where you can donate online.  You can also ring them up and email them to find out how you can donate some of your time to volunteer for that group.
