Train to become a wildlife rescuer and carer
2016 Courses announced soon
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 a two day Rescue and Care Course.
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.
The two day course covers the rescue and care of a variety of native animals including adult possums, lizards, turtles and a wide range of birds. After completing the course and gaining some experience you can choose to go on to do other courses and learn how to rescue and care for other 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.
