 Over the past year, 297 animals have been reported to Wildlife Victoria suffering from despicable acts of cruelty. 

297 cruel acts is 297 too many.


Our native wildlife are supposed to be protected and while Wildlife Victoria is doing everything we can to respond to animals that are suffering, the State Government are doing very little to ensure that our wildlife are safe. With your support, we can continue to lobby the State Government to put native wildlife on the agenda and make their welfare a priority.


Please don’t let these beautiful animals die in vain. Together, we can ensure that justice is sought for malicious acts of cruelty towards our vulnerable wildlife. Lets’ show the Government that we do care about our precious native wildlife and sign this petition.


The welfare of our native wildlife is not a priority for government but you can have a say where your tax dollars are utilised by making a tax deductible donation to Wildlife Victoria to ensure we’re on call to help suffering animals.
