Looking for volunteers to be wildlife carers
OUR weather just isn’t kind to our wildlife at the moment.
It’s either too cold, too hot, too dry, too wet, or too windy.
It has made that baby bird season a tough struggle for the chicks.
Wilvos is really looking for new wildlife carers at the moment. The more people who can learn to care for our wildlife the better.
Often people are under the misconception that if they have domestic animals they can’t look after wildlife.
In fact, as animal lovers, the majority of wildlife carers have their own domestic pets.
It is also a fact that all wildlife carers began looking after wildlife with little or no prior knowledge of the needs of orphaned or injured Australian wildlife.
I am presently looking after my first corella chicks. It is always a learning experience looking after a new species.
So if you are interested in being involved in any capacity, there is an information and induction day at Yandina on Sunday, November 5.
Membership application forms are available on the Wilvos website or you can call 5441 6200.
