Next date: Saturday, 29 January 2022 | 10:00 AM

Have you come across injured wildlife and not known what to do? Dogs, cats, foxes, cars and fences are just some of the perils our native animals come up against and sometimes they need immediate care before they are transported to a vet or wildlife carer.
This webinar will cover:
- how to check pouches of deceased animals
- how to remove young marsupials from a pouch
- what to do if you find a baby bird on the ground
- how to provide immediate care to an injured animal
- how to make your garden safe for wildlife
