The Wildcare Helpline provides a service for the public who find sick or injured native wildlife and are seeking advice on where to find care for the animal.

To assist with a large volume of calls, the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions Volunteers and Community Unit, have developed a smartphone app, designed to provide information about what to do if you find sick or injured native animals, without the need to call the helpline.

You will also find links and phone numbers to assist in dealing with cane toads, stranded whales and dolphins, as well as information about becoming a volunteer. 

You can still call the helpline via the app if the information you need isn’t covered.

Using the ‘Find Help’ section, the app will be able to put you in touch with a list of the nearest wildlife rehabilitators the Department works with, or find nearby vets using your device’s map program wherever you are in Western Australia.

If you’ve found injured wildlife, call the Wildcare Helpline on (08) 9474 9055, or use the new app, available for Android or iOS.

Available to download FREE for Google Play now on the Google Play and Apple iTunes stores.
