Winter Newsletter

We are taking advantage of our quieter time for wildlife to offer training courses for our members from now until November. It is really important that members comply with the conditions of the Rehabilitation Code of Practice and ensure they retrain at a minimum of three year intervals. Many members who have not met that requirement now need to take action to meet their obligations and to be able to retain their Authority to Rescue and/or Care. Training will be one of the many subjects raised in the Compliance Audit currently being undertaken of FAWNA by Office of Environment and Heritage. This Audit was advised to members in the June Member Bulletin. In July your management committee will be meeting with OEH Senior Team Leaders from Sydney.

There are some great training courses on offer so please book in early to ensure we have your training materials prepared on time. It’s a lot of work so make it easy for us please by booking via the training courses link above. All the details are there.

Please renew your membership on time – they are due by 30 June, 2016 – and make sure your records are all squeaky clean by being up to date at 30 June which is our records close off date for annual reporting to the licensee.

Thank you goes to rescuers and rehabilitators, phone operators, committee, supporters, fundraisers, families and significant others. By our collective effort we have kept the FAWNA front door open 24/7 and have achieved some humane and many good outcomes for our wildlife.
