‘Our mission’ is to rescue and care for sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife throughout the Rockhampton region of Central Queensland.

Wildlife Rockhampton is a registered charity, established in March 2014 by like-minded community members willing to open their hearts and homes for sick, injured or orphaned wildlife.  Our group is run totally by volunteers, with funding and assistance coming through the generosity of community members donations, volunteers and support for our various fundraising activities.  By supporting Wildlife Rockhampton you are giving the local area’s native wildlife a second chance for a happy, healthy life.

Rehabilitation – our registered and highly trained and experienced wildlife carers provide care, protection, medical attention and comfort to wildlife whilst in our care.  Our ultimate goal is to prepare wildlife for release back into their natural habitat with the greatest chance for survival.

Release – we ensure that released wildlife are behaviorally and physically fit enough to have the best chance of survival, as well as contribute to the ongoing benefit of their natural habitat and the environment.

Education – Wildlife Rockhampton encourages a greater understanding of living with and preserving our unique wildlife.  We provide education on conservation of wildlife and their natural habitat, inspiring involvement to maintain a group of dedicated volunteer wildlife carers.

Wildlife Rockhampton has some fantastic success stories of wildlife that have been rescued, rehabilitated and released successfully back into the wild.  Read a few of our ‘blogs  on our ‘Posts’ page or view our ‘wildlife family images’.
