Wildlife Victoria (WV) is a not for profit and volunteer based organisation that has been at the forefront of wildlife rescue and rehabilitation in Victoria since its formation in 1989. It provides a 24 hour, 7 day a week wildlife rescue and information service. WV also maintains a wildlife care and communication network across Victoria which assists wildlife rehabilitators.
By using a comprehensive networking system of wildlife shelters, rescuers and transporters, emergency services, government agencies and commercial operators, we are able to respond swiftly and effectively to all manner of wildlife rescue situations, from orphaned ducklings to injured adult kangaroos.
WV also has trained volunteer rescue teams that can be called upon at any time to assist in wildlife rescue emergencies such as bushfires and oil spills. Wildlife Victoria operates a 24 hour Emergency Phone Service which receives over 500 calls EVERY DAY about sick, injured and orphaned wildlife.
