Sydney Metropolitan Wildlife Services Inc (Sydney Wildlife) was formed in May 1997, by a large group of experienced wildlife carers, to meet the specific needs of urban wildlife in the Sydney metropolitan area.

We are licensed by NSW National Parks & Wildlife Service to rescue, rehabilitate, and release sick, injured and orphaned native animals. We also strive to educate the community, at all levels, about the need to protect our native animals and to preserve their habitats.  Our organisation is a registered charity and is operated entirely by volunteers. We offer this rescue and advice service, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
