Thanks to everyone who has donated to ACT Wildlife this year. Your donation is really appreciated as it helps to support wildlife care.
Thank you to the National Zoo and Aquarium who donated $5000 to ACT Wildlife. We were able to buy 5 new aviaries for carers to house animals.
In the ACT it is illegal to hold a wild native animal for longer than 48 hours unless you are a registered carer with a licensed group. Any native animal that is able to be approached is in need of care and the best thing to do is to take it to a carer as soon as you possibly can so it can receive specialist care from people who understand the medical needs of a native animal.
