Wildlife Rescue South Coast
100% volunteer-run organisation
Wildlife Rescue South Coast is a 100% volunteer-run organisation dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of Australian Native Fauna.
We have been operating on the NSW South Coast for over thirty years - although until 2010 we operated under the name of Native Animal Network Association. We operate 24 hours a day and typically respond to over ten thousand rescue calls every year. We are licensed by the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service to rescue birds, reptiles and mammals (other than Marine-based mammals such as seals). Our North branch stretches from south of Wollongong to Batemans Bay, and the South branch operates south of Batemans Bay to the Vic border.
What we believe
- Wildlife Rescue South Coast subscribes to the NSW and international code of ethics for wildlife rehabilitators
- Wildlife Rescue South Coast opposes the culling of native animals where the motivation for the action is convenience or profit
- We are not in favour of keeping Australian native animals as pets
- Wildlife Rescue South Coast is strongly opposed to recreational hunting
- We encourages responsible pet ownership, especially in regard to preventing damage to wildlife and their habitat
