Exmouth  Wildlife Care Group

Exmouth Wildlife Care Group

Exmouth Wildlife Care Group is run by registered volunteers also known as Carers.  It is part of a nation wide network who work together to:

  • Care for sick, injured and orphaned wildlife
  • Rehabilitate and release wildlife back to their natural environment
  • Aim to prevent road accidents with wildlife through education and infrastructure

What They Do

A rescued animal will be assessed by the group's coordinator. The animal may also need to be Vet checked. If the animal can be rehabilitated it will be allocated to a Carer.  The animal will then be cared for until it is ready for release.

Care group also do fund raising activities to assist with their upkeep.  When you are in town you may come across some Joeys enjoying a meet and greet usually at the Community Markets or outside a local venue such as the Visitor Centre.  For a small donation you can have a cuddle and photo taken.  It does depend on the day how the Joeys are our Carers only bring the Joeys along if they are relaxed and happy.  Even though they are being hand raised they are still a wild animal and our Carers will always put the animals welfare first.

 

Remember to always drive carefully and slowly particularly in the national park area where the wildlife is in abundance.

  How You Can Help

Donations are always welcomed by the Group.  The group does receive some annual grants but the costs are ongoing. Milk, Bedding, Feeding Bottles etc all have to be purchased on a regular basis. You will find plenty of places around town that have Wildlife Donation Tins. Alternatively you can make a donation either by visiting their Facebook Page, please click here , or during the booking process of any of our holiday homes. All proceeds go directly to maintaining and preserving our Local Wildlife

The most important way you can help is to be Wildlife Wise yourself and to pass your knowledge on to others.

THANK YOU FOR CARING
