Become a Virtual Carer today

Every year WIRES receives tens of thousands of rescue calls for native animals in distress. Those animals rely on ongoing support from people like you to make sure they’re rescued quickly, and receive longer-term care if they need it.

By becoming a WIRES Virtual Carer you’ll be joining a group of people dedicated to protecting Australia’s wildlife. For just $20 a month you’ll be making sure our rescue teams continue to provide distressed native animals with immediate assistance, and where possible, a second chance of life in the wild.

As a WIRES Virtual Carer, you’ll also receive monthly updates on the rescues and releases you’ll be helping make happen!

Or you can:

  1. Call our Support Team Monday to Friday on (02) 8977 3396 to sign up over the phone, or discuss any questions you my might have.
  2. Organise a direct debit from your bank account by printing a direct debit authorisation form and emailing it to [email protected] or posting it to: WIRES, Reply Paid 88452, Warringah Mall NSW 2100.
