Thank you for expressing an interest in becoming a release site for rehabilitated wildlife! Our volunteer wildlife carers work hard to rescue and rehabilitate our local wildlife and one of their biggest challenges is finding a safe location to release them.
We appreciate you taking the time to complete this form so we have a good understanding of what species would best suit you and your property.
Before you start, it is helpful if you have some recent photos of your property you can upload. This will help us assess the suitability of your property for various species.
The release of wildlife in Queensland is governed by the Nature Conservation Act 1992. Wildlife volunteers are further governed by the Code of Practice – Care of Sick, Injured or Orphaned Protected Animals in Queensland.
These legislations restrict how and where rehabilitated wildlife can be released. In general, wildlife must be released back as close as possible to their original rescue location. This is very important as most wildlife have a defined home range and some are very territorial. The Wildcare Release Site program will help us to find nearby properties where rescued wildlife can be safely released away from roads and other dangers.
Wildcare will not use the personal information provided by you in this form for any purpose other than to communicate with you regarding utilising your property as a release site. We will not use, sell or distribute your personal details for any marketing purposes.
Your contact details and information relating to your property will only be used by registered Wildcare wildlife carers.
If you have any questions regarding this Program, please don't hesitate to contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We're happy to answer any other questions you might have or you can request one of our wildlife volunteers to give you a call to discuss further.
