Speak up for Wildlife

Let’s speak up for Wildlife in Victoria

 

Every day concerned Victorians speak up for our precious native wildlife. They go out of their way to contact Wildlife Victoria or they protect and rescue our precious and native wildlife.

 

Wildlife Victoria will receive up to 300 calls with stories of sick, injured or orphaned wildlife needing help, from concerned and compassionate Victorians every day.

 

They all have one thing in common – they speak up for our wildlife.

 

It is ordinary Victorians speaking up for our wildlife

 

Earlier this year, just after duck season commenced, a concerned resident from Moderra, located on the Surf Coast Shire of Victoria, called Wildlife Victoria’s wildlife emergency service.

 

She had found a native, pink eared duck in her backyard, shot and injured. Immediately one of our Wildlife Victoria volunteers was dispatched to attend the scene, transferring the duck safely to a local emergency vet clinic.

 

When we all speak up for wildlife, businesses listen

 

Recently, a tawny frogmouth was trapped on tar like substance on the train tracks at Flinders Street Station. As you and I know, Flinders Street is the busiest station in Victoria.

 

Thankfully, Metro Trains spotted the young bird and contacted Wildlife Victoria immediately. They diverted the trains to other tracks so as not to injure the tawny any further, while Metro employees helped our rescuer with the recovery.

 

Wildlife Victoria are the lifeline for our wildlife

 

Last year alone over 80,000 calls for help were received by Wildlife Victoria, with our 1,500 volunteers across Victoria helping 43,528 native wildlife from 271 different species!

 

Our volunteers, members of the community, caring vets and compassionate donors all speak up for our wildlife.
