The Western Ringtail Possum is a
small marsupial which is native to the southwest region of
Western Australia. Living so closely with wildlife offers many
important opportunities to experience nature but can
sometimes cause problems too.
If you’ve found injured wildlife, call the Wildcare Helpline on (08) 9474 9055.
The wildlife volunteers can put you in touch with your nearest registered wildlife rehabilitator. They can also:
- offer advice on sick, injured or displaced native wildlife.
- refer callers to a wider network of experts for assistance.
They can also provide information on dealing with snakes and stranded whales or dolphins.
The Wildcare helpline cannot attend rescues, assist with non-native or domestic animals.
Contact the RSPCA for emergencies and acts of cruelty.
