Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service (WIRES)
WIRES (Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service Inc.) is Australia’s largest wildlife rescue organisation, and has been rescuing and caring for native animals for over 30 years.
We have over 2500 volunteers in 28 branches involved in the rescue and care of wildlife and we have a dedicated Rescue Office that operates 365 days a year assisting the community to help native animals in distress. WIRES helps tens of thousands of animals every year, receiving up to 95,000 requests for rescue advice and assistance every 12 months.
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.
WIRES also relies on the help of volunteers to fundraise, answer phones, co-ordinate animal care, enter records into WIRES database, speak to community and school groups and assist with other administrative tasks.
