Commemorative Issue: Wildlife Caring: Rescue to Release

Common WombatEastern Grey KangarooKoalaGrey-headed Flying FoxSouthern BoobookRingtail Possum

Stamp Collecting Month 2010 is focused on wildlife caring, introducing children to the important work that an army of volunteers undertake everyday. The release of this issue coincides with Wildlife Awareness Month, which aims to raise public consciousness of wildlife rescue and rehabilitation.

Australia has no national organisation for responding to wildlife emergencies. But many independent associations have been established nationwide. They are of varying size and sophistication, and typically operate thanks mainly to their dedicated volunteer members. Two of the largest are Wildlife Victoria and, in NSW, WIRES (Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service).
