Support Tasmanian Wildlife and their rehabilitators through TWRC

The Tasmanian Wildlife Rehabilitation Council is a collective and collaborative organisation representing wildlife carers around the state which works for the successful best practice rehabilitation and release of native Tasmanian wildlife. Its aims and objectives are to:

– Be a voice for all registered Tasmanian wildlife carers.

– Provide education and training opportunities to achieve consistently high standards in wildlife care and excellent welfare outcomes.

– Assist in the development of state and national Codes of Practice, ensuring Tasmanian carers to continue to meet and surpass existing codes.

– Liaise with government departments and other relevant bodies and organisations on native wildlife issues.

– Provide representation on relevant committees.

– Establish portfolio working groups and seek wider consultation to assist them in carrying out their functions.

– Increase community awareness, interest in and support of Tasmanian wildlife welfare and conservation.

– Source appropriate funding to support the Council’s work.

– Liaise with interstate councils and encourage the formation of National Wildlife Council, and provide representation for this council
