  • To increase the perceived value of native fauna in the public eye.
  • To ensure the accountability of wildlife carers/rehabilitators whilst members of the association.
  • To support and assist carers to ensure native fauna receives the highest possible standard of care and rehabilitation using current research and evidence based best practice in order that each animal shall have the best possible chance of survival once released.
  • To ensure that members are aware of and fully abide by all provisions of the Code of Practice for the Care of Orphaned, Sick or Injured Protected Animals by Wildlife Care Volunteers (Nature Conservation Act 1992).

Last Snake Awareness Workshop

 It was great to see the children asking so many questions & Tableland people be so interested in wildlife. TWR thanks members, sponsors  and public who attended and special thanks to Ranger Dan and Jackie for an entertaining and informative day !
