The Wildlife Rehabilitator Grants program provides funding to support Victoria’s wildlife rehabilitators.

The program aims to help wildlife rehabilitators to:

  • increase their knowledge and skills in the care of wildlife
  • improve their facilities to treat, house and rehabilitate wildlife for release
  • enhance the standard of care provided for native species

The Victorian Government is providing $230,000 for the Wildlife Rehabilitator Grants 2021-22 round.

Grants of up to $3,000 are available to authorised wildlife shelter operators and foster carers for equipment, infrastructure, consumables, education and training.

Applications close at 3.30pm on Wednesday 13 October 2021.
