Sydney Metropolitan Wildlife Services Inc (Sydney Wildlife) was formed in May 1997, by a large group of experienced wildlife carers, to meet the specific needs of urban wildlife in the Sydney metropolitan area.
They are licensed by NSW National Parks & Wildlife Service to rescue, rehabilitate and release sick, injured and orphaned native animals and to educate the community, at all levels, about the need to protect native animals and to preserve their habitats. Their organisation is a registered charity and is operated entirely by volunteers. They offer a 24-hours, 7-days rescue and advice service.
As their name suggests, Sydney Wildlife operates in the Greater Sydney Metropolitan Area which extends from the Hawkesbury River in the north, to Picton in the south and from the foothills of the Blue Mountains to the ocean.
As well as caring for sick, injured and orphaned native wildlife, Sydney Wildlife is also involved in educating the community about native wildlife and its habitat. From kindergartens to retirement villages, community education packages are tailored to meet the specific needs of a wide range of audiences.
Sydney Wildlife is an entirely voluntary, charitable organisation.See more
