WILVOS (Wildlife Volunteers Association) is one of Queensland's longest running wildlife rescue organisations. Operating for over 30 years, their misson is to improve outcomes for all Australian native animals. WILVOS follows the Code of Practice for volunteer organisations.

Where is all begun

WILVOS started back in 1986 when an increase of development commenced around the Sunshine Coast that in turn created a surge of injured, sick and orphaned animals. With more volunteers desperately needed to keep up with the influx of injured animals, by 1995 WILVOS became an incorporated association working very closely with Queensland National Parks.

What they provide

The WILVOS volunteers provide rescue, rehabilitation and release services to injured, orphaned and distressed native animals. Working closely with many other wildlife services and organisations including the Australian Wildlife Hospital, local vets, local businesses, the Sunshine Coast University, local councils and the police, they recieve thousands of calls and rescue requests a year.
