Thanks to so many members of the public in the northern rivers, WIRES has successfully rescued and released many hundreds of native animals in their more than ten years of service.
This is all possible because WIRES Northern Rivers has a 24-hour hotline easily reached by a local phone number: 6628 1898.
Volunteers are ready any time night or day to take your call.
WIRES is a state-wide organisation with branches all over NSW. There is a NSW rescue line and a wildlife rescue mobile phone app, great tools if you are travelling around the state and away from the region.
However, if you live in the northern rivers, or are travelling in this wonderful region, please use the local number. It connects you to your local WIRES volunteers immediately and ensures the most rapid response they can muster.
So, take a few moments to put the hotline number into your mobile phone. Next time you are out and about and spot wildlife in need, it will be that much easier to reach WIRES.
WIRES is a registered charity, not a government service, and relies heavily on donations from the general public.
Various types of volunteer assistance are needed, not all members do animal rescues.
If you are interested, call the 24-hour hotline on 6628 1898 or go to http://wiresnr.org/Helping.html to find out how you can help.
