To Rescue, Rehabilitate and Release Sick, Injured and Orphaned Native Australian Wildlife.
We will achieve our mission by:
• developing and maintaining a group of dedicated Carers & volunteers;
• training our Carers & Volunteers in the appropriate care of Native Australia Wildlife and ensuring that we maintain the best standards of care;
• raising public awareness of wildlife issues and;
• ensuring that the donations we receive are put to their most effective use in the rescue, rehabilitation and release of native Australian wildlife.
• We will maintain a 24hr/day, 7days/week phone service to receive reports on sick, injured or orphaned native Australian animals.
• When receiving telephone calls we will be courteous and polite, acknowledging that the caller may be distressed;
• Any personal details we request of the caller will only be used to affect the rescue and treatment of the animal concerned and will not be used for any other purpose or reported to third parties unless required by law.
• We will ensure that the best interest of native Australian wildlife is our primary concern.
• Animals will be assigned to carers based on their location, experience, the species of the animal and the carer’s availability and resources.
• When a sick or injured animal can not be released back into the wild (e.g.. due to a terminal/debilitating illness or injury) we will promptly and humanely euthanise it so as not to prolong its suffering.
• Kangaloola will respond to all issues raised with it within six weeks.
• Kangaloola will deal with issues objectively, keeping the best interest of native Australian wildlife in mind at all times.
• Callers understand that we are volunteers and that there is a limit on things we can do.
• Kangaloola is subject to numerous pieces of government legislation including the National Parks and Wildlife Act.
• Kangaloola relies on donations from the public and receives no recurrent funding from governments.
• Carers accept that the animals in their care are a national resource and not to be treated as private property or pets. As such they should abide by the directions given by our animal care coordinators/committee.
• Carers will obtain and maintain the requisite level of knowledge and skills in the best standards of care of native Australian animals.
