How many times have you come across an injured animal on the side of the road and didn’t know what to do? Or maybe you have checked the pouch of a kangaroo roadkill and found an orphaned joey needing care and attention.
Brisbane Valley Kilcoy Landcare invites you to a free Information Session to be held on Sunday morning 6th August from 9.30am – 11.30am at the Kilcoy Information Centre, 41 Hope Street, Kilcoy to hear Roslyn Leslie from Wildlife Volunteers Association (WILVOS), located on the Sunshine Coast. Morning tea will be served at 9.30 and Ros will start her presentation at 10.
WILVOS is a non-profit organisation who specialise in the rescue, rehabilitation and release of orphaned, injured and distressed wildlife back into their natural habitat.
Ros has been with WILVOS for more than 20 years and is keen to share her knowledge and passion for rescuing and rehabilitating native wildlife. Her presentation will cover many topics including how to care for injured and distressed animals until help arrives, the best way to make an emergency nest for displaced baby birds, and what to do if you find an orphaned joey still in its mother’s pouch. Ros will bring pouches, baskets and bottles to show us and will also have a supply of 1st aid kits for injured wildlife that can be purchased.
This talk is suitable for everyone, and children are encouraged to attend. Questions after the presentation will be welcomed and Ros will be very happy to speak with anyone interested in becoming a wildlife carer.
With warmer weather fast approaching, more wildlife will be out and about and in contact with people, cars and pets. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to safely approach injured wildlife and get them the help they need
