Helping injured wildlife

Due to bushfires, droughts, bad winds, urban sprawl and other various factors we have had growing numbers of injured wildlife bought into our hospitals.

What to do if you find a baby bird:

  • The best thing to do is place the bird back up in the nest if possible.
  • If not, you can often make a replica nest by strapping an ice-cream container to the tree and filling it with leaves etc. The parents will then come down and feed the baby and it will have a much better chance of survival than a hand-raised bird.
  • If this is not possible, place the bird in a dark, warm box and if it is uninjured contact Sydney Metropolitan Wildlife Services on 9413 4300 or WIRES on 8977 3333 ASAP and they will organise to send out a carer.

For injured birds, mammals or reptiles

  • If you find an injured bird, mammal or reptile, place it in a warm dark box and bring it in to your nearest Sydney Animal Hospital so we can assess its injuries, commence treatment and re-release the animal as soon as possible.
  • Make sure you make a very careful note as to exactly where the animal was found so it can be released back into the same spot or as near as safely possible.
