Native Wildlife in Distress?


Please call 13 000 94535 or click through here to log a case directly. Our service responds to all sick, injured and orphaned native wildlife enquiries.



A BIG, BIG thank you to the 2,406 supporters who signed and forwarded Wildlife Victoria’s petition to the Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Water, The Hon. Lisa Neville.


This level of response clearly demonstrates to the Minister that the community truly cares for native wildlife and is sickened by any cruelty inflicted on these iconic creature.

Wildlife Victoria will continue to work relentlessly to reduce the suffering of wildlife by providing the community with our Emergency Response Service (13 000 94535) for injured, sick and orphaned wildlife across Victoria, and doing everything in our power to lobby the government to make welfare of wildlife their priority. As we are a small charity without any ongoing government funding we rely solely on contributions by generous members of the community. Your donations are vital for our mission. Click here or call 03 9445 0310 to make a donation.
