About Sydney Wildlife Rescue

Sydney Wildlife was formed in 1997 by a large group of experienced wildlife carers, to meet the specific needs of urban wildlife in the Sydney metropolitan area. We are licensed by NSW National Parks & Wildlife Service to rescue, rehabilitate and release sick, injured and orphaned native animals and to educate the community, at all levels, about the need to protect our native animals and to preserve their habitats. Our organisation is a registered charity and is operated entirely by volunteers. We offer a 24-hours, 7-days rescue and advice service.
Each year we receive over 12,000 calls from members of the public with wildlife concerns and many of these calls require further assistance. If you would be interested in helping our native wildlife we would love to talk with you about our two day Rescue and Care Course where you will learn the skills you will need to rescue and rehabilitate native animals. If you are not able to rescue and care we also need volunteers to take the calls in our rescue office located in the Lane Cove National Park. Full training is provided and you will work with others who share a love of animals and a desire to help the public and our wildlife.
