Contact us to help with cages, blankets, towels, material to make possum and roo pouches, or timber/marine ply to make bird and possum boxes, or you could donate cash. Just contact us. All help is greatly appreciated.

Provide a sturdy dish of water for wildlife in your neighbourhood, please ensure the water source is away from domesticated animals and fresh every day.

If you come across a native animal in need of help,

the RSPCA call line 1300ANIMAL (1300 264 625 ) reaches a network of carers across QLD . If you see an animal in distress, 1300ANIMAL is your go to number . Locally you can call the Gladstone Wildlife Care line direct on 0427106803.

Some handy household items to have ready are a pillow case, collapsible boxes, towels and blankets. Read more on our Animal Emergency page.

Later on, plant a native or two! We have access to such great resources in our community, so go for a walk through Toondoon Botanical Gardens and find a range of plants to suit your backyard.

A word of thanks
