Southern Wildlife Rescue and Care

Southern Cross Wildlife Care was established by veterinary surgeon Dr Howard Ralph, and his wife Glenda, for the treatment and care of injured, sick and orphaned native Australian wildlife of all species.

Southern Cross Wildlife Care has its major centre in Braidwood, and a smaller centre in Sydney.

Thewy have no government funding and rely on the kindness and support (financial and in kind) of the public. They welcome volunteers with veterinary qualifications, as well as people with ‘handyman’ skills who can build and repair enclosures, etc. They also welcome volunteers with fund raising, marketing, and media skills.

Rescuing and caring for injured native animals is something you can do from home! It’s a great option for people who live in remote areas. Get in touch to receive training before attempting to care for animals, to protect both you and the animals.

Everyone at Southern Cross Wildlife Care is a volunteer, including their veterinary staff. Get in touch to find out how you can help!
