This event offers attendees the essential skills required to rescue, transport, and provide immediate care for a variety of native wildlife species.
WIRES, the prominent wildlife rescue organization, is calling on dedicated individuals to join their mission of safeguarding native wildlife.
"After officially launching NSW Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service (WIRES) in 1986 and working with WIRES until 1994, I eventually left Sydney and moved to Grenfell in 2001," Mikla Lewis, Founder of WIRES, said.
"After a few years living here, I saw the need for local wildlife volunteers and launched the WIRES Weddin-Lachlan Branch in 2005 with my partner Wayne Lavers."
"The course aims to equip individuals with the skills and knowledge to safely and effectively respond to wildlife rescues and consists of an online theory component and a workshop component.
"Individuals who complete the training will go on to become wildlife volunteers in their local region, meaning they may be called upon to respond to wildlife in need of assistance across the Cowra, Forbes, Young, Grenfell, and surrounding regions.
"We are always looking for as many volunteers as possible, especially ahead of the upcoming predictions for a very hot summer."
