If you come across injured wildlife take some simple steps, such as keeping the animal warm and minimising noise – then contact a wildlife group, veterinary hospital or one of Taronga's wildlife hospitals.
When an injured animal is brought to one of Taronga’s Wildlife Hospitals, the veterinarians’ ultimate aim is its release back into the wild. Wherever possible the rescuer is involved in that exciting event!
