Please bring sick or injured birds straight to our rehabilitation centre. You do not need to call us first. We may not be able to take your call during busy periods.

Which birds do we take?

We accept native and non-native wild birds that are sick, injured, or orphaned.

All birds are treated and rehabilitated for release wherever possible. Birds are euthanised only if there is no other option, and only as a last resort.

We do not accept:

  • Roosters and chickens – please contact The Animal Sanctuary for advice
  • Pet birds – if you find a lost or abandoned pet bird, please contact your nearest SPCA centre
