It is great that we get calls from concerned people about injured wildlife. Sadly we are not rescuers. My family and I raise money from Conservation, but we don’t have the training, skills or equipment to help with a wildlife rescue.
I have listed the organisations that are the best people to call.
I have listed for Sunshine Coast and Brisbane
Wildlife Rescue Sunshine Coast has been set up by several long term wildlife carers after discovering the need for a reliable rescue & wildlife rehab service on the Sunshine Coast. We are entirely voluntary and cover all costs ourselves, therefore we appreciate your assistance in transporting animals to us if at all possible.
Our wildlife emergency number is 0415 839554 if that number is busy please call 0432 310 556.
