Injured Wildlife

If you find an animal that needs help

Call a wildlife carer immediately and follow their advice. Click on your state to find the phone number
of your nearest wildlife carer. Most have 24-hour hotlines so they are always available. Please don’t send a wildlife carer an email, as every
minute counts when you’re trying to save an injured animal. You wouldn’t email 000, would you?

NATIVE ANIMAL RESCUE ASSISTANCE APP

The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and the New South Wales Wildlife Council
(NWC) have upgraded their Wildlife Rescue App which allows easy access to a directory
of contact details in search for a licenced rescue and rehabilitation group for your location within NSW.

Additionally, for the first time, it allows the user to report deceased animals, allowing wildlife rehabilitators to accurately monitor the cause
of local deaths and identify danger hotspots, allowing for appropriate mitigation measures to be developed with local Councils.

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details…

iOS: https://apps.apple.com/…/a…/ifaw-wildlife-rescue/id714566079

Being a newly launched App, some users may experience some “teething problems” and if so, you are encouraged to advise the details on the feedback
section.
