Rescue and Rehabilitation of Australian Native Animals Inc


Important Update

It is with deep sadness we announce that after over 30 years of voluntary service to the Community RRANA is coming to an end.
Like so many charity groups, we have found it difficult to attract the quantity of new members required to share the ever-increasing workload.
We ask the public to understand that this has been a difficult decision for our members. It is extremely distressing to have to walk away however as of 1st March we will not be in a position to assist with sick, injured or orphaned wildlife, so please do not contact our members directly.
The RRANA phone will be disconnected on 1st March 2024.
In the absence of a voluntary native wildlife rescue group, it becomes the responsibility of NPWS to fill the void. Their number is (08) 8084 2880 as listed in the header of this website.
All calls must be directed to NPWS. Please contact them so that they are aware of the number of animals in the area that need help.
Our members wish to thank the Broken Hill public for their support and generosity over the years.
Thank you,
The RRANA team 💜


Become a wildlife carer/rescuer

help-wildlife-500x216

Here at RRANA we are always looking for dedicated and committed carers and rescuers to join our team. We will provide you with adequate training in order to ensure that you are competent and confident in dealing with rescued and injured wildlife.

Not everyone is in a suitable position to be able to care for animals in their own home; factors include work commitments or family commitments, or financial restrictions may not allow you to get fully involved.

Don't let any of these things stop you from becoming involved with our group. There maybe other ways you can volunteer your help with RRANA.

The National Parks and Wildlife Service has prepared a short induction video to assist groups with training for new and prospective volunteers.

The video acknowledges the important work of wildlife rehabilitators and contains key messages relevant to working cooperatively within groups and complying with our codes of practice.

The video is an initiative of our volunteer wildlife rehabilitation strategy and can be viewed by following the link below to the environment.nsw.gov.au website.
