Wildlife Victoria - Emergency Services Information Session
What happens in a wildlife shelter?
Wildlife shelters are very special places where injured, orphaned, displaced and sick native animals go through a rehabilitation process in order to be released back into the wild where they belong.
This talk shares the intricacies of how a wildlife shelter operates, so the animals in care can fully recover and have a second chance in life.
That includes providing them with the right food, housing and medical treatment, as well as looking after their emotional state and socialising with their own kind.
The talk also covers some releasing techniques and environmentally friendly ways to run a wildlife shelter.
This presentation shares lots of stories, cases and personalities of amazing animals that have been in the shelter over the years.
