WIRES 2nd Wildlife Ambulance in Tasmania

WIRES Emergency Response Team is delighted to announce the launch of our second Tasmanian Wildlife Ambulance, bringing our total number of rescue vehicles to 7. This new addition will enable our Emergency Responders in Tasmania to continue their vital work of rescuing and caring for sick, injured, and orphaned animals.

The new Wildlife Ambulance will be based in the North of Tasmania, where it will support wildlife across a broader area. We are proud to work closely with our partner, Bonnorong Wildlife Sanctuary, Tasmania's largest community-run wildlife assistance service. Together, we strive to provide the best possible care for wildlife in need.

WIRES' Emergency Response Team often travels long distances to transport sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife to vets, and the launch of our second Wildlife Ambulance will provide much-needed support in Northern Tasmania. This year, our Northern Tasmania Wildlife Ambulance has already completed over 140 rescues, providing support to the whole northern half of the state. WIRES’ first Tasmanian Wildlife Ambulance is providing assistance in Southern Tasmania.

The launch of our second Tasmanian Wildlife Ambulance is a significant milestone for WIRES Emergency Response Team. We are proud to expand our services and support more animals in need. We thank our partner, Bonnorong Wildlife Sanctuary, for their collaboration and support. WIRES will continue to work tirelessly to rescue and rehabilitate wildlife in Australia, and we invite you to join us in this important mission.
