WIRES needs caring people to help native wildlife. Courses are coming up in Dubbo, Coffs Habour, Batemans Bay, Balmain, Lismore and Bega.

Most of our training courses are run in the autumn and winter months.

Training courses run for two days and you must attend both days of the course. It is always best to attend a course in your local area if possible.

We Urgently Need Your Help to Make a Bigger Difference for Wildlife.

WIRES have been serving wildlife and the community for almost 30 years and we are witnessing a dramatic, ongoing increase in wildlife rescues.

From 12,451 rescues in 2004 to over 68,000 rescue calls in 2013, WIRES have experienced a 446 percent increase in annual rescue calls!

More and more animals need help.  With your help we can make that happen. Please give now to help wildlife.

Pouches for wildlife Print E-mail

Joey in knitted pouch with linerEvery day  WIRES volunteers are taking orphaned young marsupials into care. Youngsters like the swamp wallaby joey (pictured), wombat, glider, bandicoot, ringtail and brushtail possum joeys and many others.

These young animals need a safe and warm environment that is as similar as possible to their mothers pouch where they would normally be if they were not in care.

Each joey in care therefore needs a pouch. There are two kinds of pouches, one inner liner of cotton and an outer pouch made of wool.

See a clip featured on Sunrise about how the pouches are used by our volunteers
