Becoming a FAWNA Member

If you feel that you would like to join the FAWNA organisation and become Authorised to rescue and or care for wildlife there are three member intakes each year – in February, June and October when Induction Training Courses are held.  

Details on when the courses are run will be included on this webpage once COVID-19 restrictions allow. 

Types of FAWNA Membership

  • Full Members must undertake a basic training course before being issued with an authority to rescue and rehabilitate wildlife.
  • Supporting Members can help FAWNA’s activities in many important ways eg. duty phone officer, sewing pouches, constructing holding pens, computer work, newsletter, education displays and fundraising.
  • Associate Members whose circumstances may not enable them to take an active role in FAWNA, but their membership fees help FAWNA by providing funds for the costs associated with wildlife rehabilitation activities
  • Junior Members may support an adult member in their household by caring for injured, orphaned, disadvantaged fauna.

As well to these vital activities FAWNA also needs more duty officers for the 24-hour emergency rescue telephone line.  There are also educational, handyperson, and fundraising activities that members can be involved in. 

Members also receive 4 newsletters and 4 bulletins per year, and there are quarterly general meetings and an annual general meeting.
