WIRES Wildlife Rescue has been rescuing and caring for wildlife for over 35 years and is the largest wildlife rescue organisation in Australia. This project will help WIRES provide and operate our dedicated Wildlife Rescue Office assisting wildlife and the community across Australia 24-hours a day, 365 days a year and ensure our rescue advice and assistance for over 130,000 animals annually is there to provide help for orphaned, displaced and injured native wildlife.
WIRES is the largest wildlife rescue organisation in Australia and we receive around 180,000 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.
