New Healthy Wildlife, Healthy Lives website launch
Keeping wildlife healthy is the aim of a new website launched by the Eastern Metropolitan Regional Council (EMRC), in conjunction with long-term partners Murdoch University, Kanyana Wildlife Rehabilitation and Native Animal Rescue.
Supported by Lotterywest, the new Healthy Wildlife website was launched on 3 March 2017, to coincide with World Wildlife Day as part of the Healthy Wildlife, Healthy Lives project, the first of its kind in Australia, which focuses on the potential harm that can be caused to wildlife through interactions with people.
It provides useful information on wildlife health, different fauna species, and what to do if you find sick or injured wildlife.
The project is part of the One Health global initiative that recognises the health of humans, animals and the environment are all directly linked. A key component of the program is providing the primary source of information that enables active and ongoing community participation.
The Healthy Wildlife website can be found at www.healthywildlife.com.au
Remember, if you find sick, injured or orphaned wildlife in the south-west region, we can help. Call FAWNA on 0438 526 660.
