2015 Sydney Wildlife Courses. NEXT COURSE IS 8-9 AUGUST.

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.

Sydney Wildlife Rescue & Care Course:

Rescue & Care courses entail two full days training; are held every 3 months and are always on a weekend.

8-9 August

  • 31 October - 1 November

Occasionally additional courses are operated, so keep checking here for information about other courses.

The cost of attending the Rescue and Care course is $100/person or $130 for 2 living at the same address and sharing materials. The fee includes a range of supplies, startup equipment and your first annual membership to Sydney Wildlife, which is $30 per person

If you go out to work, own pets or live in a unit you can still be a rescuer or carer.

Places are limited so if you would like to train to become a wildlife rescuer and carer, request an information package as soon as possible. If you are requesting a package on-line and don't have access to a printer, remember to include your name and postal address so it can be posted to you.
