Look­ing for vol­un­teers to be wildlife car­ers

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - LIFE - WILVOS NEWS DONNA BREN­NAN

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.
