Train to become a wildlife rescuer and carer in 2014
Next Rescue and Care Course 9th & 10th August 2014
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 and Sunday August 9th & 10th 2014. The course will be held at Northbridge (near North Sydney). If you are not available to do the August course, the next course (and last course for 2014) will be on Saturday and Sunday 8th & 9th November.
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.
