Fauna Rescue Whitsundays Association Inc

Whitsunday Fauna Rescue Fund

Fauna Rescue Whitsundays (FRW) was formed on April 15th 2001 and cares for many sick, injured and orphaned wildlife in the Whitsunday Shire and surrounding areas such as Mackay, Sarina, Nebo, Dysart, Moranbah, Clermont, Glenden, Collinsville and Bowen, Qld. Our aim is to rehabilitate and release these animals back to their original environment. FRW is a voluntary, home-based organisation with little overheads and working in a very cost-effective manner. Our members do cover costs of housing, food, first aid supplies and vet bills (although we do receive excellent support from our local vets who work for little or no cost).

Support the Proserpine Rock Wallaby
FRW is also committed to support the research, protection and recovery program for the Proserpine Rock Wallaby, an endangered marsupial known to occur only in the Whitsunday Shire. This wallaby is currently under threat from land clearing, predation by dogs and cats, plus toxoplasmosis, a disease spread by cats. We do get a number of these wallabies into care each year.

Support our Koalas
FRW has been receiving more koalas into care and has now launched our Koala Mapping Project. We are working closely with the mining community, main roads and landholders to ensure all koala sightings are mapped on our database. This in turn will help us identify Koala populations in our area (as little research has been done to date), as well as locating new release sites for koalas in our care.

Key Areas of Expenditure
