Organisation type

F.A.U.N.A. is a dedicated group of volunteers who care for sick, injured and orphaned native Australian animals.

Company Overview
F.A.U.N.A. volunteer members raise and rehabilitate orphaned, sick or injured native animals and return them to the wild. As we are a small group with unpaid volunteers who all have busy lives and/or jobs, we cannot always offer a rescue service but will always attempt to offer advice when we are available by phone.

In conjunction with local vets, we assess the animal’s condition, treat and care for it. This can be for either a few days or up to eighteen months. After caring for or rearing the animals, we send them back into the wild using carefully controlled release methods.

Wildlife caring requires time, money and resources and we arrange our lifestyles to accommodate the animals in our care. We receive an enormous amount of satisfaction from successfully rearing and releasing animals back into the wild.

We keep detailed records of all the animals in our care which are then made available to all carer groups, Government Departments and scientists to assist with fauna research.

We work in close contact with veterinarians, the Queensland Parks & Wildlife Service and other wildlife groups.

We organise educational information seminars, give talks to local groups and provide training sessions to volunteers who would like to become wildlife carers.

As our work is voluntary, we do not receive government funding.
