Darling Range Wildlife Shelter (Incorporated) [DRWS] is a totally volunteer and not-for-profit organisation whose purpose is to rehabilitate native wildlife and promote the value of biodiversity.
We rely on the genorosity of the community for help in continuing our work. Financial donations are invaluable!
DRWS volunteers rescue, provide care and rehabilitate Australian native wildlife in need including threatened, endangered and migratory species. Our aim is to work towards their release back into their natural environment. Each year we record around 1000 wildlife admissions.
The daily running of the Shelter is supported by over 100 volunteers who participate in a variety of roles. Volunteers are available daily from 8.30am until 5.00pm. Each year our members provide over 40 000 unpaid hours in support of DRWS.
DRWS has developed, and continues to evolve, from a love of and commitment to wildlife and the natural environment. All of our members actively promote preservation of the natural environment and living considerately with wildlife.
Given the increasing pressure placed on wildlife and their habitat, DRWS is a member of the Conservation Council of Western Australia (CCWA).
We are actively involved in local wildlife and habitat management issues, and support opportunities for community education by presenting at various schools and community groups.
