Redlands Wildlife Network Community Meetings
If you are interested in finding out more about our native wildlife, come along to our community meetings held at the Redlands IndigiScapes Centre, 17, Runnymede Road, Capalaba (Ph 3824 8611) on the first Monday of each month (unless it is a public holiday). Guest speakers will focus on different animals at the meetings and you can meet our wildlife officers there.
Becoming a Wildlife Carer
If you are interested in becoming a wildlife carer, you will need to register with a wildlife organisation. These can be found on the internet under “wildlife care organisations in Queensland”. Once you have joined a group, they will assist you in obtaining a rehabilitation permit so you can begin caring for sick, injured and orphaned wildlife.
Joining the Redlands Wildlife Care Network as a carer
After you have become a member of a wildlife organisation, have a current rehabilitation permit as a carer and live in (or close to) the Redlands area, you can join our network of wildlife carers by contacting a wildlife extension officer on 3824 8611.
