Rescue Contacts

Although we are based in Canberra and can help with assistance over the phone or in the Canberra region, you might be travelling and it is always good to have contact numbers saved for the areas you travel through. This is in case you encounter injured wildlife and require assistance with a rescue or need to take an injured or orphaned animal to a wildlife carer.

This list is as comprehensive as possible but not exhaustive.
