2014 Sydney Wildlife Courses:

Sydney Wildlife members rescue, rehabilitate and release sick, injured and orphaned native wildlife and educate the community about native wildlife and its habitat. If you live in Sydney and are at least 18 years old you can apply to complete a two-day Rescue & Care Course and become a member of Sydney Wildlife. Once you have completed the initial course and gained some experience you can go on to do other specialised training courses. Examples of specialised courses include baby possums, baby birds, flying-foxes (bats), macropods (such as wallabies and kangaroos), Raptors (such as birds of Prey) and snake relocation.
