Rescue & Care Course - August 2013
Next Rescue and Care Course Saturday & Sunday 10th & 11th August 2013
If you would like to become a Wildlife Rescuer, a Wildlife Carer or help out answering Sydney Wildlife's Rescue Hotline; if you are at least 18 years old and live in the Greater Sydney Metropolitan area, then you might like to join the team at Sydney Wildlife by completing the next two day Rescue and Care Course which will be held on Saturday & Sunday 10th & 11th August 2013.
You don't need any special qualifications to do the course, just a love of animals and a commitment to the protection of native wildlife and habitat.
In this course you will learn how to rescue and care for a variety of native animals including adult possums, lizards, turtles and a wide range of birds. After completing this course and gaining some experience you can choose to go on to do other courses and learn how to rescue and care for a range of other types of animals such as baby possums, macropods (such as kangaroos and wallabies), raptors (such as owls, falcons and other birds of prey), snakes and bats.
The cost is $100 per person (or $130 for two people sharing materials who reside at the same address). The fee covers the cost of a range of materials; start-up equipment and a license fee of $30.00 per person.
If you can't make the August 2013 course, the next course will be Saturday & Sunday 2nd & 3rd August 2013.

We made it with the help of our supporters
To raise much needed funds for an enclosure for the rehabilitation of kangaroos and wallabies Sydney Wildlife took part in a special Global Giving fund-raising challenge during the month of April. With help from our supporters we met the challenge.
