Make an Immediate Impact

Welcome to WIRES, where your desire to make a difference in wildlife rescue becomes a reality. Our Rescue 101 Program is more than a course; it's your path to becoming a compassionate force for injured and sick wildlife. 

Simple Rescues, Maximum Flexibility

Designed for Swift Engagement

The Rescue 101 Program is crafted to swiftly involve more people in wildlife volunteering. We understand that quick action is often crucial for the most common wildlife calls we receive – those requiring rapid transport for veterinary assistance. As a Rescue 101 volunteer, you'll respond to calls for simple rescues and transport wildlife to veterinary care. Your role provides maximum flexibility, allowing you to decide how often you get involved and how many rescues you undertake.

Who Can Join

Inclusivity in Action

Rescue 101 is open to individuals aged 18 and over who reside in areas of NSW where WIRES is licensed to rescue and care for wildlife. You're ready to join if you have your own transport and a compassionate heart.

Species You Can Assist With 

Empowerment Through Knowledge

Upon completion, Rescue 101 volunteers can assist with rescuing and transporting birds, possums, lizards, turtles, and frogs. Your newfound knowledge enables you to make an immediate impact in alleviating suffering.
