Sydney Wildlife Rescue and Care Course
Time Out says
Learn how to care for native wildlife at this two-day Centennial Park course
Want to help rescue, rehabilitate and release injured and orphaned native wildlife in the Sydney area? Then you’ll probably want to become a member of Sydney Metropolitan Wildlife Services (aka Sydney Wildlife) and get cracking on practical support for local critters, as well as educating the community about native habitat preservation so healthy animals have a happy home to return to. Get started by completing this Rescue and Care Course.
The two-day program is running in February to give participants insight into how they can care for animals in need, and provide accreditation to officially rescue and foster native creatures like birds, possums, turtles and lizards. You need to be over 18 to take part in the course, and annually update your membership with Sydney Wildlife to remain accredited by the non-profit group.
As well as the rewarding experience of saving furred, feathered and scaled little cuties, you’ll also get to volunteer with the Sydney Wildlife's Rescue Line and gain a whole lot of knowledge about the national parks around Sydney. You will need to be able to dedicate your time to both full-day sessions from February 15-16 to participate.
