Here is what your donation can help us achieve…

  • Can provide approximately 1 kilo of Lorikeet Honey Eater food which together with natural foods sustains the following species whilst in care: Rainbow lorikeets, both Red and Little wattle birds, White Plumed and New Holland honey eaters and Spinebills.
  • Can provide approximately 1 kilo of Whiting fillets or Pilchards which makes up a major part of the diet of the many water birds and seabirds that come into care: Penguins, Pelicans, Shearwaters, Petrels, Gannets, Cormorants, Gulls, Prions, Terns and Herons.
  • Provides a Drey (home) for a ringtail upon release.  All hand reared orphans and any long term care ringtails are released back in the wild with their own drey which they have been housed in whilst in care. This makes releasing them back in the wild as smooth as possible as they would normally spend many days building their own drey.
  • Is able to provide approximately 1 kilo of Insectivore Mix which is an essential part of the diet of Echidnas and many species of birds that come into care including: Magpies, Magpie larks, Tawny frogmouths, Kookaburras, Butcherbirds, Ravens, Lapwings, Pardalotes, Wrens, Thornbills, Shrike-thrush, Rails, Swallows and Silver eyes.
  • Equips a transporter or rescuer with a Carry basket to transport injured or orphaned wildlife to a carer or vet.
    Each volunteer requires several of these carry baskets.
  • Provides approximately 1 kilo of Milk Replacement formula for orphaned possums: Ringtails, Brushtails and Sugar gliders.
  • Provides about 750 ml of Re-hydration fluid essential in the recovery of stressed and heat stressed animals during the summer months.
  • Provides approximately 1 kilo of Kangaroo or Wombat Formula for orphaned Wallabies, Eastern grey kangaroos and Wombats. Most orphans come into care due to the mother being hit by a vehicle. Extra care should be taken when driving between dusk and dawn.
  • Provides approximately 10 kilos of Good Quality Seed which is fed together with natural foods to the many seed eating species of birds that come into care such as: Stubble and Button quail, Bronze wing and Crested pigeons, Cockatoos, Corellas, Rosellas, Swift and Redrump parrots.
  • Can purchase a Landing net which is an essential item in a rescuers kit for rescuing small animals and birds.
  • Can purchase a High visibility safety vest worn during rescues especially on roadsides and at night.
  • Can purchase a high quality Torch essential in locating animals during rescues.

Provides a Habitat box for parrots, possums and gliders. Many animals are displaced due to loss of habitat by an ever increasing human population. AWARE supplies many habitat boxes each year. These boxes provide shelter for future generations.


Allows us to operate the hotline phone for a month. The hotline is manned by volunteers and provides an essential service aimed at a speedy response to wildlife in need of assistance.

Thank you for your support!
