Are you passionate about helping orphaned wildlife live long and happy lives? Wildlife carers could use your help making pouches to keep their rescues safe, warn and settled.

The role

When young wombats, wallabies, kangaroos, bandicoots, gliders or possums come into care they need to be kept warm and quiet. Animal carers across the country are regularly in need of suitable pouches of various sizes.

Would you like to help wildlife carers do what they do best? Depending on the complexity, size, and number of pouches - they can be made in only a few hours. Receive instructions on how to make and donate pouches for WIRES (or another wildlife organisation of your choosing)
