Have you ever felt helpless not knowing what to do after coming across injured or orphaned native wildlife? All too often help comes too late, with numerous calls made to the wrong organisation, wasting many people’s time and endangering animals’ lives.
Wildlife Rescue App, a free mobile phone application – the first of its kind in Australia – aims to empower people by putting them in direct contact with the nearest rescue organisation in NSW, at the touch of a button. Downloading and using this simple, yet effective App is an easy and direct way to to help our native wildlife.
IFAW and the NSW Wildlife Council partnered to develop this App. The timely launch of the Wildlife Rescue App means there’s now a chance of saving injured or orphaned wildlife, especially in the days and weeks after a bushfire when animals are displaced and seeking food and shelter.
