Injured Native Animals

If you come across an injured animal contact wires—1300 WIRES—1300094737. 

WIRES was established in 1985, when an injured Ibis was found in the heart of Sydney, in Hyde Park. No organisation, government or conservation group could take responsibility for its rescue or care.

Other animal groups, such as the RSPCA, are not equipped to rehabilitate native animals. WIRES quickly established a coordinated network of wildlife carers and rescuers.

WIRES mission is to actively rehabilitate and preserve Australian wildlife and inspire others to do the same.
