Projects & Activities
There are a other ways you can help Victoria’s wildlife and not all of them include climbing a tree to catch a koala. Below you’ll find some information on joey pouches and possum boxes, two incredibly useful items for our volunteer rescuers and carers.
Joey Pouches & Pouch Liners
Do you like to knit or sew? We would love you to make pouches or liners to keep our little joeys safe and warm. Our volunteer carers put in so much time and love when caring for these precious creatures, but most don’t have time to knit or sew the pouches that they require for the little ones in care. If you, or your craft group can help with making some pouches, please click here for instructions of how to make the different types.
Do you or your friends have basic woodwork skills? Making possum boxes is a great way to give rehabilitated orphans a home and a fun activity too. Volunteer carers will raise possums in their own nesting box and ultimately release them back to the wild along with the nest box they have grown up in. Please click here for instructions and dimensions.
If you have an idea for a project or just want some more information on the above activities please don’t hesitate to contact Wildlife Victoria by phone on 03 9445 0310 or by .
