Order of Australia Medal

The Australian Honours and Awards system recognises the outstanding service and contributions of Australians.

While typically they haven’t sought thanks or recognition, they deserve both. The Honours and Awards system gives the nation a chance to celebrate and acknowledge those who work tirelessly to improve local communities and to make Australia a better place.

Joan R– For Service to Conservation and the Environment

Lynleigh G – For Service to Wildlife Conservation.

Sydney Wildlife Rescue have had a wonderful year with two of their very active volunteers receiving a medal at the Australia Day Awards ceremony for their contribution to Wildlife.

Joan started up the Rehabilitation facility and is the project manager of the rehabilitate Wallabies and other wildlife projects at the facility.  She also was instrumental in the development and implementation of the idea of having a wildlife only Mobile Care Unit       (Wildlife Vet Clinic).

Lynleigh and Joan have both been co- managers of the mobile care unit since its inception where they ran many fund raisers to raise enough money to buy the brand new RV and then set it up as a clinic. This would not have been possible without the huge amount of help from other members and the donations from the public.

Lynleigh is Northern Beaches reptile co-ordinator for Sydney Wildlife and as well as the OAM, she also received the Pittwater Woman of the year award last year.

Joan and Lynleigh were awarded these OAM’s because what they accomplished would have been a feat if it was their paid day job, but No, they did this completely as volunteers! This is not always easy when you have spent the day at work, then when you get home, you need to look after a family, feed the wildlife in your care and clean and then organize fundraisers and manage the Rehabilitation Facility.

Both ladies have numerous awards for their tireless volunteer work with wildlife and we are soo lucky to have them on our team and see them recognized for the amazing work they are doing for our native wildlife.
