History of Wildcare
Mission Beach Wildcare was formed as a working group of C4 (Community for Coastal and Cassowary Conservation Inc.) in March, 2002.
Founding members Robyn Hardwicke, Kris Bridgfoot and Rona Harvey, saw a need within the community to support the local wildlife carers, and already being C4 members (and wildlife carers) themselves, it seemed logical that the rescue/rehab sub-committee should develop into Mission Beach Wildcare.
Mission Beach Wildcare Inc. has since become an incorporated association, separate to C4. There is now a hotline number – available 24 hours – for any native animal needing attention, advice regarding animals already in care, and also for removal of snakes causing a problem in the home.
Accurate records are kept, with every call logged and information relating to the animal and it’s eventual outcome stored in a database.
