WILVOS (Wildlife Volunteers Association Inc)—Charity of the Month Recipient for April 2021
WILVOS (Wildlife Volunteers Association Inc) is our charity of the month for April 2021. Based on the Sunshine Coast, they are one of Queensland’s longest-running wildlife rescue organisations. Operating for over 25 years, their mission is to improve outcomes for all Australian native animals.
Previously caring for wildlife under the umbrella of Queensland National Parks, WILVOS became an incorporated body back in 1995, operating with only 20 volunteers. Now 25 years later, they have 300 members who all have a passion and desire to assist our native animals in need.
With a dedicated hotline that operates 24 hours a day 365 days a year, WILVOS receives thousands of calls each year from members of the community requiring assistance for injured, orphaned or distressed animals.
