Welcome to Wildlife RockhamptonRescuing and caring for sick, injured and orphaned wildlife throughout Central Queensland
Wildlife Rockhampton – Rescue, Rehabilitation & Release Inc. has been set up by like-minded community members willing to open their hearts and homes for sick, injured or orphaned wildlife in the Rockhampton and Livingstone regions, including Gracemere, Yeppoon, Emu Park, Cawarral, The Caves and all surrounding areas.
Wildlife Rockhampton is run by volunteers and funding only comes from the generosity of the people of Central Queensland through donations, membership and support from our various fundraising activities. By supporting Wildlife Rockhampton you are giving the local area’s native animals a second chance for a happy, healthy life.
Wildlife Rockhampton’s aims include:
Our hotline 0429 GO WILD (0429 469 453) means members of the public are able to call for assistance when wildlife is found injured. We provide advice on site to rescues as required, helping to minimise the suffering of sick, injured or orphaned Australian native wildlife.
Our registered and highly trained wildlife carers provide care, protection, medical attention and comfort to wildlife whilst in care. Our ultimate goal is to prepare wildlife for release back into the wild with the greatest chance for survival.
We ensure that released wildlife are behaviourally and physically fit enough to have the best chance of survival, as well as contribute to the ongoing benefit of the environment.
Wildlife Rockhampton encourages a greater understanding of living with and preserving our unique wildlife. We provide education on conservation of wildlife and their natural habitat, inspiring involvement and volunteers to maintain a group of dedicated wildlife carers.
