Wildlife Rockhampton

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.


With the current hot, dry, windy weather & the fires about…..please leave shallow bowls of water under shade for the wildlife.  If you are near a fire zone, keep an eye out for injured animals, and check fences in case they have become entangled whilst fleeing.  If you see any that need help & it is safe to contain them, please take them immediately to a vet for treatment.  If uncontained, please phone 1300 ANIMAL.


Become a Wildlife Hero with RSPCA

Being a Wildlife Hero is a selfless and rewarding decision that doesn’t have to take up all of your spare time. With the option to attend to calls in an area you choose, for animals that you feel comfortable handling and in times that suit your life, this decision can work with your lifestyle.
Heroes are asked to assist sick, injured or orphaned wildlife. In many cases these animals have already been placed in confinement for travel and simply need to be picked up and transported to receive care.
Anyone who feels they want to do more, is able to give some time and offer true support to injured Wildlife, can sign up to be a 1300 ANIMAL Wildlife Hero. Simply register with the Wildlife Hero Registration Form and the RSPCA will send you your Hero pack. This is your chance to make a real difference to the wildlife of Queensland.
