Human activities often have a devastating impact on Australia's wildlife, resulting in many sick, injured and orphaned animals and birds every year.
Natural events such as fires, storms and floods can also result in injury and orphaned animals. Wildlife care is an important way of coping with some of the damage we cause to wildlife populations.

All wildlife rescue and care is carried out on a voluntary basis and all costs including equipment such as heat pads, carry baskets, food and enclosures are met by the individual shelter. Some animals need to stay in care for up to 18 months. Any assistance in the form of a donation is a great help.

The long planned state-of-the art fox/cat proof enclosure has been completed and its first residents - Ringtail Possums (Spindle, Sparrow, Bertie and Button) and Apollo, the Koala - enjoyed the large space that allowed them to get fit and agile prior to their release back into the wild.
