Helping our Wildlife
All year round, vets around the world help injured and sick native animals. We do it because we care about all animals. Each year, we see well intentioned people do more harm to these guys than good.
Below I will list some files sourced from other websites for situations that we are faced with regularly, especially during Spring.
Many people often want to keep these wild animals as pets, even if they can be rehabilitated back to being able to live in the wild. In NSW, you need a licence to do this.
I believe that all wild animals belong in the wild.
I support maintaining a habitat for all wild animals, including birds, which all of us can do with our backyards. I don't support the keeping of wild animals as pets, and I do know the arguments for and against this. But, it is a grey area, as it really depends on the individual animal, on whether they can cope being a pet or not. Some wild animals adapt really well, and are not stressed in the process. Many others are, and die as a result of the stress.
WIRES now has an app - where you can contact them directly if you find injured wildlife. Click here.
