Animal rescue group desperately seeking carers
NORTHERN Rivers Wildlife Carers is calling for new members to bolster its ranks and help look after the many animals who suffered during wild weather events over the past few months.
Over this time members of Northern Rivers Wildlife Carers have been stretched to the limit rescuing suffering animals from Byron Bay to Tabulam and as far south as New Italy.
The organisation's spokeswoman, Chrisy Clay said an introductory training session would be held in Lismore later this
month for people keen to become involved.
"The Northern Rivers Wildlife Carers operate across one of the most bio
diverse regions in the country, and as a result we rescue a very wide range of animals," she said.
"Apart from responding to severe weather events, the vast majority of animals come into care because of human activity."
"The severe weather events this year and increased calls to our hotline service has really stretched our volunteers."
"We're hoping to bolster our ranks with new members who can assist with this important work"
At the session new members will be taught to rescue and assess injured or orphaned native animals.
