Injured Wildlife

Keep injured wildlife safe and call for help.

If you find injured wildlife, keep them safe and call for help.
 
Call FAWNA 0438 526 660 or the Wildcare Helpline 9474 9055. 
They will advise if the injured animal needs to be taken to a vet or wildlife carer.
 
Do not attempt to feed them or give them water.
 
Injured wildlife should be kept in a safe, dark and warm place until they can be handed over to a wildlife carer.
 
Call for advice before moving if you find a possum on the ground or around your house. Possums are not ground dwellers but may need to come to the ground to travel to the next tree.
 
To assist in conservation research, report sightings of living or deceased western ringtail possums to the Department of Parks and Wildlife website or contact the Department of Conservation, Biodiversity and Attractions in Busselton on 9752 5555 or 9752 5533. You can also complete a fauna report form. The link for the report form can be found here: Fauna Report Form.
