About the Wildlife Rehabilitator Grants

The Wildlife Rehabilitator Grants Program provides funding to support wildlife rehabilitators including shelter operators and foster carers, to purchase a range of equipment and infrastructure to assist with the operation of their facilities and to attend training.

The program aims to help wildlife rehabilitators to:

  • increase their knowledge/skills in the care of wildlife
  • improve their facilities to treat, house and rehabilitate wildlife for release
  • improve the standard of wildlife care provided for specialist species (e.g. raptors) or threatened species (e.g. brush tailed phascogales)
