01 Nov PPE Equipment for rescuers
We are excited to share that Northern Rivers Wildlife Carers was awarded a grant from @fnpwaustralia (FNPW) under their Wildlife Heroes Program.
The key goal of this grant is to support wildlife rehabilitation groups and independents to acquire PPE that will improve the safety of volunteers while performing wildlife rehabilitation activities.
The grant was used to purchase safety vests identifying members as trained wildlife rescue volunteers, head lamps, first aid kits, arm guards and vaccinations. Having access to Personal Protective Equipment allows us to continue to provide specialized care for sick and injured native wildlife in a safe environment.
The Wildlife Heroes Program is managed by the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife with funding from the New South Wales Government through its Environmental Trust.
