Injured Wildlife

If you find Injured Wildlife in the Gippsland area, please follow these steps:

  1. Do NOT attempt to feed or give water to injured wildlife.
  2. To assist with shock – Keep warm, dark and quiet.
  3. Call 1300 BADGAR and a licensed Wildlife Carer/Rescuer will assist you.
  4. If a Joey is attached to a teat do NOT attempt to remove it. Take the whole animal with you OR call from the side of the road.

IF YOU CAN NOT GET THROUGH TO BADGAR PLEASE CONTACT COLLEEN WOOD WHO WILL ASSIST YOU.

Telephone: 0429 653 583

Please be understanding when phoning that the shelter runs from the busy family home of Colleen.  Sometimes family (or an animal) needs

attending to first but Colleen will always get back to you to attend to your wildlife issue.
