Uralla Wildlife Sanctuary relies heavily on the community to assist us to continue on with our work. We realize that different people can help in different ways.
- You can become a member of our vibrant organisation and get all the news from Uralla!

- Make a donation to help us support this adorable mob
- Perhaps you would like to volunteer at Uralla.
Volunteers are the backbone of the sanctuary and assist in the day to day care of all the animals. Whilst this includes lots of cuddling the orphaned babies it also includes the less glamorous jobs of picking up poo (and believe me there is lots of it), washing dirty bedding and other less savoury tasks, all vital to the smooth running of the sanctuary.
Volunteers generally live on site and work in exchange for food and board. We can be contacted via the HelpX website or direct via this website.

If volunteering at the sanctuary is not for you there are still heaps of things you can do to help out. We always need people who can sew to make pouches, sheets and blankets for bedding.
Donations in kind are always gratefully received; we always need T-shirts (to be sewn into pouches), towels, sheets, blankets, toilet paper, powdered milk, hay, oats, fencing materials, paint.
Maybe you are good at fundraising and perhaps would be happy to shake a tin at a shopping centre, hold a raffle, organize a cake stall or whatever you like. Uralla receives no government funding and relies entirely on donations and sponsorships to pay for the very expensive day to day running costs.
Why not be our eyes on the road?
We cannot be everywhere. If you take the time to be vigilant whilst on the road and stop and check the pouch of any dead kangaroo or wallaby, you will be doing a great job ensuring that as many orphans as possible make their way to the sanctuary and ultimately release back into the wild.
Please check out our information here to ensure the best chance of survival for any orphaned or abandoned animals you may come across.
