Victoria Wildlife Heroes

Most Australian wildlife rescue and care is done by hardworking volunteers.


More than 500 wildlife shelters are registered in Victoria. Thousands of volunteers give their time, money and love to Australian animals in need. The Wildlife Heroes project will ensure wildlife volunteers get the help they need, so they can continue providing the best care for our amazing native wildlife.
