Your help to support Australian wildlife rescue to release, will ensure our 365 days a year, 24 hours a day Wildlife Rescue Team can continue to provide rescue advice and assistance for native wildlife and the community. We are called to help hundreds of thousands of orphaned, displaced and injured native animals annually. We received over 200,000 calls in the last year. WIRES provide full-time mobile Wildlife Emergency Responders operating across New South Wales, SE Queensland and Tasmania.
WIRES is the largest wildlife rescue organisation in Australia and we receive around 200,000 calls for advice or rescue help to our rescue line annually. WIRES is not government funded and we rely on the generosity of the public to be able to provide a rescue call centre and to support our volunteer rescuers in their work saving the lives of Australian animals.
WIRES provides a Rescue Line that people can call when they find a sick, injured or orphaned native animal. Our volunteers can quickly be notified via our rescue systems and animals can receive essential veterinary assessment and treatment where required. Ongoing care costs such as food and medication can be subsidised to ensure the best chance of survival and release back to the wild.
To provide help, care and treatment for all native Australian wildlife in distress and ultimately to rehabilitate and release back to the wild to maintain biodiversity in the Australian bushland.
