TIPS TO HELP INJURED WILDLIFEIf you find an injured animal please handle with care. Follow the steps outlined below, and prior to handling the injured animal.
Wild animals become stressed
If you find an injured animal please contact our Hotline. Keep it warm, wrap it in a shirt or towel.
Do not provide a climbing pole for a koala.
Always approach from the rear of the animal.
Do not give water, any liquid or food, until the animal has been examined by a vet to determine injuries, prior to hydrating.
Check for Dead Animals
Check dead animals – they may have surviving young with them (eg in the pouch), or nearby. If the young animal is in the pouch or attached to a nipple, remove the nipple on the mothers side to protect the baby’s mouth.
Minimise exposure to injured Animal
Minimise exposure to people and loud noises. Contact our Hotline for the closest wildlife carer.

A Long Journey
” A very big thank you to Paul who drove all the way from Birdsville to Clermont because he could not find a wildlife carer. He called into the Longreach Vets and Jess told him about us.
Juvenile Kingfisher will stay in care until ready for release. People like Paul make this world a better place”.
