New South Wales Wildlife Council

The Northern Rivers is well served by groups licensed under NSW's Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016 to rehabilitate injured, sick and orphaned protected animals. A few are specialist groups like Friends of the Koala and Australian Seabird Rescue and ORRCA, whose licence applies to our coastline; others - Northern Rivers Wildlife Carers, Tweed Valley Wildlife Carers and WIRES Northern Rivers care for a wide variety of native species.
As all rehabbers know only too well, the work is relentless and often, heart-breaking.It was with so much sadness that I said a final farewell to Mafeking this morning. My sweet boy has been fighting so hard for so long but his kidneys just packed it in and we had no way to restart them. He was an independent yet gentle soul who charmed all the girls (human and koala alike). It is incredibly frustrating to lose him after 5 months in care - we held such high hopes for him. Unfortunately, even with all the facilities and technology available to us, their ailments can be well out of our control and ability to treat. Many many thanks to all @currumbinwildlifehospital but in particular the amazing Vet Fumie who has worked so closely with me on Mafeking. Also thanks to the volunteers who made his life so fulfilling and comfortable Rest easy darling boy. Mama loves you. #friendsofthekoala #koala #joey #renalfailure #nothingwecoulddo #brokenhearted #losingsomany
