Wildlife Victoria - On Call To Help

 

Due to many forms of human intervention our iconic and precious wildlife suffer every day.

 

Wildlife Victoria cares for these voiceless animals and is committed to reducing that suffering and providing as many animals as possible with another chance at life.

 

The WV team responds to your calls through the Emergency Response Service 13 000 94535 when you report a sick, injured or orphaned animal. Using our comprehensive database we locate the nearest available and suitably experienced volunteer who then locates the animal and determines the most appropriate course of action. The calls we receive range from requests for advice on fledgling birds during spring to the very sad and emotional news that someone has hit a kangaroo.

 

Our incredible band of over 1500 volunteers responds to wildlife calls for help seven days a week with compassion, love and dedication. Maybe you would like to join us and help us succeed at attaining our growing mission? Take a look at our “Get Involved” section to see how you can make a contribution.

 

Our strong governance structure guarantees this organisation's longevity and effectiveness into the future securing the welfare of our wildlife.

 

All of us at Wildlife Victoria are here to make a difference when our wildlife needs our help. 

 

"Hundreds of thousands of wild animals are killed, injured and orphaned throughout Australia as a direct consequence of human activities. As government resources for wildlife management dwindle, much of the work of rescuing and caring for these animals falls on the shoulders of volunteer organisations such as Wildlife Victoria."
