Wildlife Volunteers Association call for volunteers..
WILVOS are always there for our orphaned and injured Australian native wildlife, in an area spanning from Caboolture to Gympie, and out to Kingaroy and beyond. WILVOS's 24/7 hotline (54416200) is manned by a group of dedicated volunteers, but with the extreme weather of late, domestic animal attacks and urban sprawl, they are now in need more.Training is given along with backup support to all their phone roster volunteers. If you are more hands on however, animal transporters and active wildlife carers are also needed. If this sounds like you and you are interested in supporting this wonderful organisation, visit their website here , or if you'd like to discuss this in person WILVOS will have an information stall, in the Council's "Backyard Living" area, at the Nambour Garden Expo this weekend or at the Nambour Collectorama on the 7th September.
