Any wildlife carers out there? - September 5th 2015, 04:21 AM

Hi guys! Im a wildlife carer (not registered yet as only 16) and was wondering if anyone else out there is too?
I specialise in water birds, small mammals (possums, native mice/rats ect) birds, reptiles and amphibians (so if you need any help concerning these types of animals Ill be more than happy to help out- even if they are domestic)

I cant raise large mammals such as macropods (kangaroos and wallabies) due to the fact I have school.... but im n=more than happy to offer advice on them too!

Have you ever rescued a wild animal? what was it?

I went to work at a wildlife rescue for a week as part of a school assignment. My job was mainly cleaning cages and feeding the animals but I got to see a lot of British wildlife including hedgehogs, foxes, mice, a weasel, and various wild birds. It was definitely an experience.

Ooh! That's awesome! I've rescued a flying fox from dehydration (I know you're not to supposed to pick them up but I did it anyway, can't just leave it), a possum stuck in the gutter, baby magpie and an injured fig bird

I'm considering to study to become a wildlife carer too


breathe. it's just a bad day, not a bad life.

I'm not a wildlife carer, but it's something I've always been interested in. Unfortunately I'm not in a position to do it right now as I have a dog and two cats (and no way to keep any convalescent creatures away from them if I brought them home), but it's definitely something I'll consider later on in life.
