Native Wildlife in Distress?


Please call 13 000 94535 or click through here to log a case directly. Our service responds to all sick, injured and orphaned native wildlife enquiries.


We want to assist every caller and don’t want any animal to suffer but sometimes we are overwhelmed by the number of callers and cannot get to everyone. If you are unable to get through on the phone it’s because we are busy tending to other urgent calls but please know we will answer your call as soon as we can. 


Alternatively you can log a case directly by clicking hereOnline cases are queued alongside calls and are dealt with equal priority by our service.


Obviously our service needs to prioritise the types of incidents reported but we will respond to all situations.


Thank you for caring enough about our wildlife to contact us.
