The Native Animal Trust Fund Inc. Hunter Wildlife Rescue is a non-profit incorporated association, licensed by the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage.
Hunter Wildlife Rescue (NATF Inc) RESCUE, REHABILITATE and RELEASE all injured, sick, orphaned and distressed native fauna other than marine mammals in the Hunter Region, NSW. All native fauna in NSW is protected under the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974 and an authority must be obtained to hold these animals.
The NATF Wildlife Rescue Service was the first volunteer wildlife rescue group to operate in NSW and was licensed in 1978. It operates rescue activities throughout the Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Cessnock, Maitland, Port Stephens and lower Great Lakes local government areas.
The main objective of the NATF Inc. Hunter Wildlife Rescue is to return all native fauna back to its wildlife habitat when fit to fend for itself.
All members are volunteers.
Due to the broad area covered, both geographically and in general responsibility, we are always eager for new members to join. We are looking for people who feel the same way to become members, rescuers and rehabilitators.
The part you play will be your own choice, from rescuing injured fauna, transporting from vet clinics to rehabilitators, being on the phone roster, rehabilitating, supporting its Disaster Relief operations or you can choose to be a financial member only (Membership Form).
Native Animal Trust Fund Inc. members meet each March, June, September and December. Invited guest speakers cover a variety of subjects and visitors are most welcome.
