There are many ways you can get involved in wildlife rescue, care and support. Take a look below to see what best suits you.
Donate to our centre
Consider making a one-off or monthly donation to directly support our centre. Any amount, however small, is much appreciated and supports our animals to be rehabilitated.
We also accept food donations (sweet potatoes and carrots), towels, blankets and other supplies.
Donating your time as a volunteer is also possible. Please get in touch here.
Register as a rescuer
Rescuing wildlife is a great way to get involved. Your job will be to bring animals to a vet or a registered carer or care centre like ours for treatment and rehabilitation.
Bonorong Wildlife Hospital and Rescue run regular rescuer training and information sessions. As a registered wildlife rescuer, you'll get notifications on your phone when wildlife in your area need rescuing.
Get in contact with Bonorong to find out more information. https://www.bonorong.com.au
There's lots of options when it comes to putting your craft skills to use for wildlife. Below are our top five favourite designs with links.
You're welcome to shoot us an email or message and organise to drop or post them over to our centre.
Other wildlife carers also appreciate crafted goods too, so make sure to spread the love around!
Become a registered wildlife carer!
We're in desperate need of more wildlife carers in Tasmania! To begin volunteering as a wildlife carer in Tasmania, you now need to complete a training course run by WIRES. The course consists of an online component and a one day face to face workshop.
The course is designed to train new rehabilitators in the essential skills they need to begin caring for fully furred Brushtail possums, Bennetts wallabies and Tasmanian Pademelons.
Being a wildlife carer is rewarding, however it takes dedication and time and is often expensive and emotionally straining. If you think you're up for the challenge, register for the course by following the link below!
