The NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment National Parks and Wildlife Service (DPIE NPWS), in collaboration with Wildlife Heroes, is working with the wildlife rehabilitation sector to improve standards in volunteer training and outcomes for animals in care. The work is part of the NPWS commitment to implementing its Strategy for the Volunteer Wildlife Rehabilitation Sector in NSW and the NSW Koala Strategy.
NPWS, alongside Wildlife Heroes, are delivering a series of webinars for the volunteer wildlife rehabilitations sector across various topics on wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and wildlife health. The webinars provide an opportunity for volunteer wildlife rehabilitators to connect with professionals in the field and provide an update on developments and current best practice in wildlife health.
