WHY DO NATIVE ANIMALS NEED SPECIAL CARE?
The essentials of caring for wildlife are the same: warmth, shelter, a balanced diet, training on how to care for itself and care while it cannot. Every species has special needs. Special skills are needed when caring for native wildlife and NQ Wildlife Care aims to assist carers in developing these skills based on advice and supervision.
The needs of animals change as they grow, and special formulas are necessary to make sure the animal gets the nutrition it needs to grown into a healthy adult or to recover from injury or illness.
Every animal deserves the chance to live a free and natural life. Native animals are not pets and should never be thought of as pets. The best feed and care is wasted if the animal is unprepared for life in the wild or it cannot be released.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU FIND A NATIVE ANIMAL?
That depends on the type of animal, where it is and whether it needs help.
