Rescue and Rehabilitation

Reptile Rescue



We offer services to help rehabilitate injured native reptiles and endeavor to re-release them back into the wild. We also offer a network for captive reptiles looking for their forever home.

As native reptiles emerge from their slumber (brumation), they go on search for food and their chance to reproduce. During this time they can also sadly find themselves falling victim to road accidents, lawn mowers and machinery – amongst other things – feral pests and even our family pets.

Unfortunately we see these accidents and injuries first hand, and every year we do our best to rehabilitate them and send them on their way. Some will make it and go back into the bush, some will sustain injuries that will prevent them from surviving in the wild (those animals will spend the rest of their lives in the special needs pits and enclosures); and some will simply not survive at all.

We also work with animals that have perhaps not experienced the nicest of homes previously and endeavour to improve their lives and wellbeing.

All these efforts take time, patience, a whole lot of love and of course: money.
If you see us at Community events, you may notice donation tins – every donation you make goes a long way!
