Do What You Can Whenever You Can
As an extremely passionate and proactive creature lover, I am dedicated in what I do when it comes to animals and I step in whenever I can to bring awareness about and safety to our many beautiful and very much misunderstood animal life.
I have been known to run towards a Magpie attacking a Pee Wee madly waving my arms to frighten the Maggey off, because I hate seeing any creature in trouble!
With this in mind, I wish to take this opportunity to bring to people's awareness that if you see ANY creature in trouble, difficulty or pain, please don't think to yourself "there's nothing I can do"! There is always something you can do!
Here on the NSW Central Coast there are two societies that are for the specific rescue of native animals.
I have had many personal interactions with Wildlife A.R.C. which is a VOLUNTEER run society of very caring and hard working individuals who have taken on the task of desiring to assist creatures that don't have a voice.
This society totally depends on the actions and kindness of their volunteers and of course any donations that may come their way. They have a 24 hour 365 day a year telephone line that is expressly for the purpose of stepping into action once they are notified of an animal/bird or reptile that has been injured.
I have contacted them for many purposes such as :-for a blue tongue lizard that had been attacked by a dog, a native quail that was cornered by a cat, a baby Wattle bird that had fallen out of its nest, a juvenile magpie that had badly broken its leg, an echnida that had been hit by a car, and just as recently as a few days ago, my husband saved a brush tail possum from being hit AGAIN (and most definitely killed) by a car on a busy suburban road.
Sometimes, it may not be nice, but if you can do ANYTHING, anything at all, even if it is removing a body from the middle of a road, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do it!
They need us to care, and to act! I mean, if we don't, who will?
