Wildlife rehabilitation sector strategy
What's this about?
The volunteer wildlife rehabilitation sector provides specialised care and treatment for injured, sick and orphaned native animals. It delivers an important service to the community.
The Office of Environment and Heritage undertook a review of the sector to better understand the services provided and the challenges faced. It also had a look at how these services may be more effectively supported in line with changes to the regulation of wildlife rehabilitation providers under the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016.
Under the Act, regulation of wildlife rehabilitation and rescue services will shift from a licence-based model to a system of accreditation.
You are invited to provide feedback on the findings of the review, recommendations for enhancing services and the proposed accreditation system.
