Do you know what to do if you come across injured wildlife?

Join Kim Davis for this online interactive workshop, where she will cover what you can do as a first responder if you come across injured wildlife,  and who you need to contact.

It will cover the most common scenarios that you might encounter with injured or orphaned wildlife.

Proudly brought to you as part of Nillumbik Shire Council’s annual Spring Outdoors program in conjunction with Manningham and Banyule councils.

While this is a free event, there will be an opportunity to donate funds for  vetsforcompassion.org.
