Wildlife Victoria Volunteer Training

Transporter Volunteer Recruitment

Applications for Transporters closed at the end of December 2019. If you applied during the bushfire emergency, your details were taken but your registration was not processed. You will receive an email once the dates for Rescue & Transporter training are available, otherwise Transporter applications may reopen once travel restrictions are lifted.

Basic Rescue & Transport Training Program

Applications for Wildlife Victoria's Rescue & Transport volunteering program are currently closed.

Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Wildlife Victoria had to postpone the 2020 training dates. Once it is deemed safe to conduct public training days, Wildlife Victoria will schedule them as quickly as possible for those of you eager to help Australian wildlife.

If you have already completed training with another wildlife rescue group, and wish to volunteer for Wildlife Victoria, please forward a copy of your certificate to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
