General Information
Help for Wildlife is a 24 Hour Wildlife Emergency Service. It is a not for profit, volunteer, Charity with a strong focus on wildlife welfare. It is not Government funded and does not have paid staff. We are run by volunteers.


Help for Wildlife is a 24 Hour State-wide Wildlife Emergency Service which is a voluntary, community based, non-profit, non-political charity, originally established in 1995 by Denise Garratt, to assist with distressed wildlife on all levels. Help for Wildlife serves to encourage greater understanding and respect for the needs of wildlife and actively seeks solutions to wildlife problems. Help for Wildlife volunteers, after the passing of Denise in 2015, continue to carry out the work she started. We offer a 24 hour, direct, state-wide, emergency information and rescue service to members of the public who seek advice and information on matters relating to wildlife. All operators are highly trained and are familiar with emergency situations. Help for Wildlife is the largest single provider of wildlife help within Victoria handling over 30,000 calls for assistance annually.

Help for Wildlife established the first wildlife emergency road signs throughout a greater part of Victoria advising motorists of the direct 24hour wildlife emergency contact number. Currently there are over 400 signs erected with an ongoing program continuously being carried out with the help of local councils and Vic Roads. These signs were the first road signs of this type established in Victoria and over the years have been instrumental in saving many wildlife lives and minimizing a great deal of suffering for injured wildlife whilst also raising public awareness for wildlife safety.

We are on constant standby to attend to wildlife emergencies such as Bushfires, Oil Spills, Floods, etc. Our teams consist of specialized voluntary veterinarians, vet nurses, first aid personnel and wildlife nurses, specifically trained to deal with emergencies.

We attend to after hour wildlife calls for a number of Veterinarians, Shires, Councils and Government Departments. We have a strong professional working relationship with DELWP, Parks Victoria, VicPol, CFA, Shires, Councils, Welfare Agencies, Zoos and other relevant Government Departments and agencies.

Help for Wildlife conduct workshops, lectures and field days, on the care and handling of Australian wildlife.

Help for Wildlife is a working partner of IFAW, International Fund for Animal Welfare

As the warmer weather approaches and fruit is ripening on our trees in the backyard, Grey Headed Flying Foxes are tempted by the sweet smells. This type of netting for your fruit trees is catastrophic for these beautiful creatures. This lactating female was caught in this netting. Thanks to the wonderful MOPs, who called us, she was freed and will be released once she has recovered. PLEASE only use animal friendly netting. We are getting a lot of calls for both bats and birds. NEVER attempt to release the bats yourself. Call us for help. One of our registered, vaccinated wildlife carers will attend.

The horrible results of barbed wire fencing on our native wildlife. Thank you to the kind man that reported this juvenile GHFF and waited for us to attend. Thank you to Louise Bonomi for your help. Sadly this young man had too much damage and was kindly euthanised by a vet.
