Wildlife Rescue South Coast incis a network of volunteers from the Southern Highlands, Kangaroo Valley, the Illawarra and Shoalhaven regions all dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of injured and orphaned native wildlife.

Woody and Kerstin are two of the dedicated members ensuring that animals such as wombats, kangaroos, possums, koalas, echidnas, reptiles, bats and birds all find their way into experienced care until they can be safely returned to the wild. An ordinary day for them consists of safeguarding the many creatures in their care which often involves four to six hours of individual animal feedings.

It takes great commitment to be a long term wildlife carer.

Additionally they educate the public on the issues facing our native wildlife and offer advice on what you can do to maintain an environment that helps our unique fauna survive.

We salute the work they do and not only is festival supporting them with much needed brand awareness and donations but we are also committed to an annual fundraiser to help with their ongoing vital work.

Every dollar helps from providing essential formulae for young mammals or medicine and necessary vet care. They receive no government funding so rely solely on public support and the personal investment of their many carers. Please help them continue their volunteer service by offering a donation – no amount is too great or small when it comes to the protection of our Australian wildlife.
