To provide the ability to drop off animals when we cant come immediately , and to ensure the birds in recovery remain undisturbed, a drop off box has been constructed at the Refuge’s front gate. Please contact Craig before dropping off any animals on: 0408-725 869.
How to Handle Injured Animals:
Craig suggests the following: throw a cloth or jumper over the animal to cover the eyes and prevent its struggling and put it in a box; keep the box in a safe, warm place while you contact an appropriate carer. Be especially careful, he warns, with birds of prey such as eagles, owls, falcons, goshawks and the like and to avoid coming into contact with their sharp talons.
