We train veterinarians and equip volunteers with innovative tools to rescue wildlife in Australia.

Problem

Australia is home to some of the most diverse wildlife on the planet, with many of the species found nowhere else on Earth. It’s also home to some big threats to wildlife: bushfires, floods, drought, earthquakes, and cyclones.

There’s also land clearing and deforestation, animal attacks, and disease. These threats are exacerbated by the region’s shortage of rural veterinarians.

Solution

We created the Wildlife Rescue App. This app connects people in New South Wales to the nearest animal rescue group when they find injured wildlife.

In April 2018, we partnered with the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary in Tasmania to open a free wildlife hospital so wild animals could receive critical veterinary care. Also, in New South Wales, we helped establish the NSW Wildlife Council to achieve better outcomes for native wildlife.   

Together, with the Australian Veterinary Association (AVA) and other key stakeholders, we continue to conduct workshops to train veterinarians in the triage and treatment of wildlife harmed in bushfires. Our workshops demonstrate a desire and commitment among vets to help wildlife thrive.

Drones help us determine the amount needed to sedate and save whales.
