Wildlife Rescue

We are passionate about native plants and animals and as such donate part of our profits to Sheoak Ridge Nature Reserve.

We are also active wildlife carers and spend many hours rehabilitating Australian fauna. The main group we look after are macropods (‘big foot’ in latin) which include kangaroos, wallabies and pademelons. These animals commonly come to us as a result of vehicle strikes which kill the mother and leave an orphan joey behind.

While in our care each one receives high quality vet care, nutrition (bottle feeding every few hours), mental/physical stimulation and nurturing.  The above is a short video showing a day in the life of a foster joey. We hope you enjoy it.

Daintree Wildlife

Native animals belong in their natural environment and this is our goal with each individual. We have had fantastic success with the long-term survival and reproduction of our macropods once they are reintroduced to the wild. If you would like to learn more about wildlife rescue or what to do if you find an injured animal please visit: www.fnqwildliferescue.org.au

Please take care when driving on our roads, especially during the early mornings or evenings (as this is when many of our native animals are most active). If you have a dog, please keep it on a leash when walking around bushland.
