The Tweed Valley Wildlife Carers do a fantastic job of looking after sick, injured or orphaned native fauna around the clock. Their mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and release native fauna.
Just recently a friend had a wildlife emergency with a wallaby on the way to work and luckily for the animal, the Tweed Valley Wildlife Carers came to the rescue. How many of us carry the emergency phone number? 02 6672 4789
Did you know that the emergency hot line of the Tweed Valley Wildlife Carers is manned by dedicated volunteers who stay by the phone on their rostered days and attend to emergencies, often having ailing wildlife in their care also.
One of my oldest friends is an absolute animal lover and has been a carer for orphaned or sick wildlife for as long as I have known her. Babies and marsupials can need feeding every 20 minutes around the clock and a lot of nurturing to become strong enough to be returned to their native habitat.
Tweed Valley Wildlife Carers has a very informative website full of information on how to be wildlife friendly and how you can help. Click here
