Busselton Water has supported the tireless work of volunteers from Dunsborough and Busselton Wildlife Care Inc. by donating 30 new animal carriers and catch equipment.

The volunteer organisation, which is dedicated to the rehabilitation and release of sick, injured, orphaned or displaced native wildlife, last year alone attended 1500 rescues.

More safe and efficient daily rescues of injured animals have been made possible by Busselton Water’s Community Partnership Program. Busselton Water chairwoman Helen Shervington said the care of local native animals was an integral part of living in the Busselton Dunsborough community and thanked DBWCI for its tireless work.

Dunsborough and Busselton Wildlife Inc. president Sasha Boundy said the new carriers had been an “absolute godsend” through the busy summer period.

If you find a sick or injured native animal which requires help please contact the Wildcare Helpline on 9474 9055.
