Eyes Open for Wildlife
We’re excited to launch our new awareness campaign called “Eyes Open for Wildlife”.
The purpose is to focus attention on the plight of our native wildlife and highlight Wildlife Victoria’s 24/7 emergency response service for reporting sick, injured or orphaned wildlife.
WANT TO GET INVOLVED?
BUY A HEADBAND
Eyes Open for Wildlife will be supported with some very funky headbands available for $4.00 each. We would love everyone to buy and wear a headband in October to show their support for this vital community service. You will act as ambassadors for Wildlife Victoria by spreading the word amongst your family and friends, ensuring that they know who to call when they find sick, injured and orphaned wildlife.
Paddy Pallin, the outdoor adventure store experts have graciously partnered with Wildlife Victoria to make the headbands available for sale in all Victorian stores and online at paddypallin.com.au.
All proceeds will go to Wildlife Victoria’s Emergency Response Service. Paddy Pallin store locations are:
Many dedicated Wildlife Victoria volunteers will be spotted at community events all over the State during October. They will be spreading the word about the importance of keeping an eye out for our wildlife and encouraging people to get involved or simply saving the phone number in their mobile phones. Some of the events that you’ll find us at are:
