NQ Wildlife Care was established in Townsville in 1989, the initial objective of the founding members of the group was to provide a support platform to the many wildlife carers in the area. Starting with only a handful of dedicated carers who held regular meetings in their own homes, NQ Wildlife Care has been achieving its goals and setting new targets throughout the last 21 years. Today we have 156 carers and supporters ranging from Cardwell in the North, South to Bowen and inland to Charters Towers. We hold regular wildlife training events and talks to improve carers’ skills and knowledge as well as to enlighten the public about wildlife in general. Some of our more experienced and knowledgeable carers also act as specific species coordinators to ensure ongoing individual support to our carers.
