Found an injured animal?
The natural environment is very important to Buderim’s natural residents and so is conservation of their homes and friends!
There are many varieties and species of wildlife in Buderim including parrots, kangaroos, possums, echidnas, tawny frogmouths, tree frogs, butcher birds, kookaburra’s like Budee and many more.
Sadly way too many of our friends are injured by cars, pets and development activity. Often we are hurt at night when many of us are most active.
Did you know that 50% off all motorists have hit an animal on the road and 30,000 of us are killed everyday in Australia and that’s NOT GOOD!
We are also very vulnerable to your pets, so please help us survive in our home which you share, by keeping them well secure inside your property. If you do happen to own a cat, put a bell around it’s neck and please keep it indoors at night!
If you find an injured animal you can call our friends at WILVOS – Wildlife Volunteers Association Inc. on the 24 hour hotline 5441 6200
