Found a Native Animal
If you have found a sick, injured or orphaned Native animal…
Native wildlife can be terrified when they are saved by a human. Firstly you need to keep yourself safe, watch out for claws, beaks, mouths, tails etc.
Preferably wrap animal/bird in a towel (covering the head to help calm them). If possible place in a secure container/box, with holes for breathing. (Some animals are notorious for escaping). Do not handle snakes, call in a snake handler.
Veterinary clinics can assist you with sick or injured native animals. You can also call DEC’s 24 hour emergency number: Wildcare helpline (08) 9474 9055
