Today is World Veterinary Day and we want to show our appreciation for all the veterinary practices who work with us for the wellbeing of our native wildlife.

We could not do what we do without the help of vets all around Australia, who use their time and knowledge to provide medical assistance to our native animals.

WIRES recently ran a program to help vets get vaccinated to allow for the treatment of bats and Flying-foxes. Due to the outstanding response of vets keen to help our wildlife, WIRES doubled the allocation of funding for this program. Together we supported 100 veterinary practices to vaccinate more than 250 staff this year.

Thank you to all vets who care for wildlife.

We couldn’t do it without you. 💚
