Emergency Duck Triage Appeal

Wildlife Victoria needs your help to assist ducks during duck hunting season this year.

When duck hunting starts on 10 April 2024, Wildlife Victoria will be providing veterinary care for ducks in wetlands during duck hunting season, again.

We will collect evidence of shooter cruelty and misconduct, again.

With your help, we will be advocating and caring for wildlife, always.

Please donate now.

Wildlife Victoria.

We get so many calls that not all our cases fit on the map, accordingly, this map is not an exact reflection of all our cases from the month. This map should only be used as an indicative sample.
