What to do if You Find Injured Wildlife

  1. Phone FAWNA on 0438 526 660 or the DBCA Wildcare Helpline on (08) 9474 9055. 
  2. Note the location, time of day and condition of the animal where you found it.
  3. Follow the advice from the call centre operator. They will put you in touch with the nearest wildlife rehabilitator that can take the animal into care.
  4. Contain the animal securely so that it does not injure itself further or injure you – use a towel or similar to pick it up and place in a secure, well ventilated box in a quiet, dark place. Do not feed the animal or give it water unless you have been advised to do so.
  5. Be careful of teeth, claws, beaks etc. when approaching and handling wildlife. Injured animals can be very dangerous when frightened or stressed.

If you have found a non-native or domestic animal that is injured or in trouble, contact the RSPCA on 1300 777 222 or your local council/shire.
