2,535 Emergency Calls to help wildlife were received by WIRES in the first 7 days of 2019! 

The WIRES rescue van regularly attends some of the most urgent and most difficult rescues.

When we asked Sharnie, who has been a WIRES rescuer and van driver for over a year, about the rescue role the van plays, she said: 
 
“The rescue van is very important as it allows WIRES to respond urgently and on short notice to priority rescues. Having a van available with extensive rescue equipment and first-aid materials which can be deployed at a moment’s notice, makes a life-changing difference to a suffering animal.” 

 Sharnie recently came to the aid of a red-bellied black snake who was in serious trouble.
 
The snake had its head stuck inside a soft drink can and was exposed to direct sunlight in temperatures over 30 degrees. In attempting to free itself, the snake suffered significant head wounds.

Sharnie, like all van drivers, has been trained to handle venomous snakes, however entanglements are always precarious. 

Freeing the snake required pre-planning, specialised equipment as well as some very careful manoeuvres on Sharnie’s part. 

She was able to successfully free the snake without any further damage to its body. It is now undergoing treatment for its constriction wounds and is in a stable condition.  
 
Every day our rescue team manages hundreds of calls for help, and every day WIRES volunteers put themselves in vulnerable and sometimes dangerous positions in order to assist native animals.

Help us continue our life saving work by donating today.
