About Wildlife Victoria

Wildlife Victoria is a not for profit, volunteer based charity, providing a vital emergency phone service to the community by responding to up to 60,000 calls per year regarding sick, injured and orphaned wildlife.

We maintain a wildlife care and communication network across Victoria which includes volunteer wildlife shelters, rescuers and transporters, emergency services, government agencies and commercial operators. Using this extensive wildlife network backed by a sophisticated database enables us to respond swiftly and effectively to all manner of wildlife rescue situations, from orphaned ducklings to injured adult kangaroos. During the last 12 months volunteers actively aided 28,387 different native animals with 70% of calls requiring a volunteer, 30% of calls were for advice.

Wildlife Victoria currently receives no government funding and operates on the generosity of donors who love and cherish our wildlife.
