Give the gift of second chances

Right now WIRES Rescue Team are receiving around 600 calls a day, sometimes 800, sometimes more.

The volume of calls is overwhelming and we endeavour to provide the best rescue advice and assistance possible for every animal.

Every animal has a story

Some like the Boobook Owl above are so injured when they are rescued that they cannot survive which is devastating.

For many others, with help from the community and our amazing volunteers, we can save lives, giving sick, injured and orphaned native animals the second chance at life in the wild they deserve.

Your support gives orphaned joeys like Willow a second chance

This festive season, please give generously. 

Please help save more lives this summer
