Tropical North Queensland is home to a diverse range of native wildlife. All native wildlife is protected under the Nature Conservation Act 1992 to order to conserve Australia’s wealth of biodiversity. Some threatened species are afforded more stringent protection under the Federal Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.
With this wealth of wildlife all around us it is inevitable that wildlife and humans will interact. Sometimes this interaction may involve becoming annoyed with the presence of an animal or group of animals due to the noise or smell. Other interactions may involve finding an injured or orphaned animal. If you find injured or orphaned wildlife that needs care please contact one of the carers, snake removers or organisations listed below.
