Wilvos Dates to Remember in 2013
WILVOs (Wildlife Volunteers Association Inc.) is a dedicated group of South East Queensland people who devote their time and effort in the rescue, rehabilitation and release of precious Australian native wildlife.
Centred on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, WILVOs cover an area of approximately 6,000 square kilometres from Gympie in the North all the way South to the Northern suburbs of Brisbane and out West to Kilcoy and Imbil.
WILVOs is purely a volunteer organisation that relies heavily on the generosity of the public, and to a lesser extent, funding through government and NGO grants when these funding sources are available. WILVOs uses these sources of funding to assist with the cost of volunteer training, maintaining the hotline, animal husbandry equipment for carers as well as educational presentations to local schools.
WILVOs carers are available to the community 24/7 and for the entire 365 days of the year via the hotline to provide assistance to native wildlife utilising a network of local vets including the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital and other carer groups. Please note that in very rare circumstances WILVOs will need to refer you to another organisation or person as we are not licensed or trained to handle some particular animals in distress (eg. snakes).
