The call of the wildlife

They might look unbelievably cute and cuddly but caring for injured wildlife and baby marsupials like this puggle (baby echidna) requires time, kindness and plenty of patience.

Thats why the Northern Rivers Wildlife Carers holds an Introduction and Basic Training Course twice a year, to give people interested in getting involved the low down on wildlife caring before they dive in. Anyone who would like to help out but cant take on the responsibility of being a carer can also attend the course and get involved by helping out behind-the-scenes with the hotline, wildlife rescue or fundraising.

The course will be held on Saturday, July 29, from 9.30am-4.30pm. The cost is $25, which includes $15 for membership. Bookings are essential, and due to licensing restrictions children under 18 are not permitted.

To book or find out more phone Karin on 6688 0118.
