True Warriors provide an amazing service for wildlife
News source: Sunshine Coast Daily, Saturday 30 December 2006
RECENTLY, I retrieved an obviously injured sea bird from the surf break of my local beach.
Unsure of how to assist the exhausted bird further, I rang Australia Zoo and was transferred to the Australian Wildlife Hospital (1300 369 652, 24 hours, seven days a week) at Beerwah and run by the late Steve Irwin’s Wildlife Warriors organisation.
The young lady explained that two “warriors” would be out immediately to collect the bird from its present location.
Complete with khaki uniform and 4WD, the “warriors” arrived within 30 minutes and took the patient away for recuperation.
It was explained to us that the bird would be well looked after at the wildlife hospital and would be released in a nearby area from where it was found when well enough.
What an amazing service the Australian Wildlife Hospital and the Wildlife Warriors perform.
Please remember them when next you look to donate.
