Often when a loved one passes away, family and friends want to do something special to honour their memory. If you’re after a lasting gesture, consider asking mourners to pledge a gift to Wildlife Victoria in their honour.

If you would like to request donations to Wildlife Victoria in lieu of flowers at the funeral service of your loved one, we can arrange to send out some special envelopes to make it as easy as possible. Please contact us or arrange for your funeral director to contact us directly.

Alternatively, you can set up your own In Memory webpage that can accept donations to Wildlife Victoria, and provide a place for donors to share messages of support to you as well as memories of your loved one.

In Kind Donations

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.

Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to arrange to donate these items.

No spare change? No problems! Why not volunteer your time with Wildlife Victoria? Find out more about volunteering.
