ANIMAL RESCUE PROGRAM: The timely rescue and assessment of sick, injured and orphaned native wildlife with the aim of quickly getting the animal to the most appropriate care be it to a veterinary surgeon, into the hands of a trained wildlife carer or relocated back into the wild.The animal rescue program includes the co-ordination and operation of a 24 hour telephone service to respond to calls relating to native wildlife in distress. The service is staffed entirely by volunteers. ANIMAL CARE PROGRAM: To care for or arrange the care of sick, injured or orphaned native wildlife with the objective of successful rehabilitation and release back to the wild.

(2) Operation of information stalls at shopping centres and a range of community events. Such stalls provide general information about native wildlife, information about the co-existence of humans and native wildlife in urban settings and provides the opportunity for members of the public to ask questions about wild life specific to the area in which they live.
