Wildlife Information

WIRES have been serving wildlife and the community for almost 30 years and we are Australia’s largest wildlife organisation. We are dedicated to the protection and preservation of native animals. We provide wildlife information and education to the community nationally and we’re licenced to rescue and care for wildlife in NSW.

All native animals are protected species. Below you’ll find links to information about some of the common native species WIRES rescue.

There are many other native species, including native rats and mice. If you need rescue help with any native species please phone WIRES Rescue Line on 1300 094 737 or fill in the Rescue form.
