Managing COVID-19 at DRWS

Managing COVID-19 at DRWS

Darling Range Wildlife Shelter volunteers are working hard to keep ourselves safe and healthy, while continuing to provide wildlife rehabilitation services.

In accordance with government guidelines, we are encouraging everyone to make the effort to reduce transmission of COVID 19.

Here are some things we are doing:

-maintaining a 1.5m physical distance from others

-encouraging our passionate at risk volunteers to stay home

-using veterinary grade disinfectants on all surfaces

-reducing volunteer numbers onsite at any one time

-minimising onsite patients through off-site networking

-minimising public access at the shelter

-ensuring essential communication with our members and wildlife rescue networks

Wildlife need our help.

At this time, we are open to calls about wildlife, provide advice on wildlife matters and coordinating wildlife admissions and treatments as necessary.

Please help keep our wildlife and members safe by following some simple guidelines;

-do continue to rescue wildlife in need

-do give us a call if you have questions about wildlife

-do contact your local wildlife independent registered rehabilitator (these wildlife carers have a card from DBCA to show they are registered) and centres for advice

-do follow our advice

If you are bringing patients to the shelter, please wait in the carpark and call us on 9394 0885 to let us know you have arrived. We will send a volunteer to you to collect wildlife from the car park and record all required information.

Please also use our hand sanitiser on our front gate to minimise viral spread.

Thank you!
