If you find any animal in distress, in danger or in trouble, please do not leave it alone suffering and probably facing a terrible death. You can report it and get help or advice about what to do (or not to do). You can be the difference between life and death for creatures in need.
Get in contact with your local wildlife carer or your vet, having their details can be very handy.
You can also contact the following organisations:
For sick, injured and orphaned wildlife
24 hour state-wide wildlife emergency service
24/7 Wildlife rescue, covering Frankston and surrounding suburbs
Organisation dedicated to rescue and rehabilitation of injured, sick or orphaned wildlife (Bendigo area)
24/7 veterinary hospital - 37 Blackburn Road, Glen Waverley
3 Burwood Highway, Burwood East
YOU CAN ALSO CONTACT YOUR LOCAL VET. GOOD VETS DON'T CHARGE TO TAKE WILDLIFE AND THEY USUALLY CONTACT LOCAL WILDLIFE CARERS IN THEIR AREA FOR ANIMALS NEEDING REHABILITATION AND CARE.
YOUR LOCAL COUNCIL CAN ALSO BE A GOOD SOURCE OF INFORMATION REGARDING WILDLIFE IN YOUR AREA

Wildlife rescue, transport and rehabilitation is done by volunteers who do not get any salary for their job. In fact, they pay from their own pockets for the expenses incurred in helping our native animals.
