Rehabilitated and ready for release
Found an injured native animal? We're here to help.
Keep the animal contained, warm, quiet and undisturbed. Do not offer any food or water.
Call Sydney Wildlife immediately on 9413 4300, or take the animal to your nearest vet. Generally there is no charge.

Welcome to Sydney Wildlife
Sydney Metropolitan Wildlife Services Inc (Sydney Wildlife) was formed in May 1997, by a large group of experienced wildlife carers, to meet the specific needs of urban wildlife in the Sydney metropolitan area.
We are licensed by NSW National Parks & Wildlife Service to rescue, rehabilitate and release sick, injured and orphaned native animals and to educate the community, at all levels, about the need to protect our native animals and to preserve their habitats. Our organisation is a registered charity and is operated entirely by volunteers. We offer a 24-hours, 7-days rescue and advice service.
