A huge Thank You to Wires for supporting and funding Hunter Wildlife Rescue with food for our fauna in care which will also help our carers whom work so hard caring for the fauna. The funding will now allow us to continue the food bank free still to all our approved fauna carers. Wires have donated $12,000 to go towards a WILDIFE FOOD account to be set up so HWR can purchase fauna food through Newcraft a fauna food suppler in Sydney. Also Wires have nominated and were successful in getting 5 Woolworths stores throughout the Hunter to supply free fruit , veggies and meat to help feed the fauna in care with HWR. This is been done under Wires National Food Grant project and we wish to thank Wires for their support and help and to say how grateful we are receiving this funding and support.

What Should You Do If There Is a Snake In Your Home?

In September/October every year the Hunter Wildlife Rescue gets many calls about reptiles being in gardens, houses, pools etc.  This is the time of year that reptiles come out of hibernation and start getting very active to breed and feed up over the summer months ready for next winter.  The other time they become more active around houses also occurs during March/April/May when the reptiles are looking for somewhere to hibernate.

Many get injured on our roads, especially our slow moving Long-necked Tortoises, Blue-tongued Lizards, Bearded Dragons, Pythons and many other species of snakes and lizards. They often sit on the tarred roads for extra warmth as reptiles need to be warm to catch and digest their food.
