A man named Viktor Kahdem has
almost given up on life because he has been sentenced to a
low-security prison farm with a non-threatening environment
where it still seems like some individuals can be reformed. At
Won Wron,a case worker named Matt Perry has established a
special kind of program to rehabilitate broken men by giving
them the responsibility for rehabilitating injured raptors.
Against all odds, Viktor meets Matt and becomes his number one
test case and is introduced to Yasmine, the majestic wedge
tailed eagle with a 2 metre wingspan. If these two can tame each
other, anything is possible
Northern Tablelands Wildlife Carers are a network of trained
volunteers licensed by NSW National Parks and wildlife Service.
you find an injured or orphaned native animal, handle it as little
as possible, follow the simple
animal first aid steps
Improper rescue can hurt both the animal and the rescuer. This is why NTWC
trains all its volunteers.
Wild animals are not used to being handled and are very susceptible to stress.
If handled improperly, they are likely to struggle and hurt themselves even
more. It is crucial to take care with the rescue of any native animal, and to
reduce the animalís stress as much as possible.
Remove any threat to the animal. This may mean locking up cats and dogs until
the animal is rescued by a licensed rescuer.
Minimise stress by placing a towel or blanket over the animal, then gently place
in a box. Put the box in a warm, quiet, dark room and DO NOT DISTURB. The stress
associated with human contact can result in death.
Seek advice. If you live in the area of Armidale call 1800-008-290 if not call
Otherwise contact your local parks and wildlife service. NTWC will give you
advice on what to do until a trained NTWC rescuer comes to take the animal to a
foster carer. The foster carer will look after the animal until it is ready to
be returned to the wild.
Please Remember: It is against the law to keep native animals taken from the
wild. They must be passed onto a licensed carer or wildlife rescue organisation.
