Don't Shoot Bats!

The Liberal National Gov of Qld has changed laws to allow shooting of native flying foxes. Click here to learn more. We need action to prevent this now! You can also visit their facebook page.  The situation is set to worsen in 2014 so the Don't Shoot Bats Campaign desperately needs your support.


Great New Aussie Wildlife Magazine
Wildlife [secrets] is a wonderful magazine for everyone who loves Australian Wildlife. We love everything about it: Over 50 pages of great photos, articles, rescue stories, nest-box instructions and more - all on high quality paper. A bi-monthly magazine, it is only $9.95 an issue, or you can have them delivered to your door for $55 a year.  We think it's the best wildlife magazine we have seen. Check  their website for more: www.wildlifesecrets.com.au.

Beware Fake Wildlife Groups
Some NSW organisations with names that infer that they are licensed wildlife rehab groups are NOT licensed, have no accountability and it is not known where the animals they "rescue" end up. If unsure, check the NWC Website or the OEH Listing of Licensed Fauna Groups.  You can report illegal operators to the NSW National Parks & Wildlife Service.

Donate to someone else!
Yes, that's right - don't send your money to us; there are others more deserving. You want to help save native animals by making a donation, but don't know who to help?  more....
