Wildlife Winter Appeal – LAOKO needs your help!


Ski season is here and our roads have never been busier with the arrival of visitors to our region. Sadly though, winter also heralds the start of the peak rescue season for our local volunteer wildlife rescue group.

Snowy Mountains Wildlife Rescue LAOKO Inc is extremely busy during snow season. Rescue and euthanasia call outs for wildlife involved in a motor vehicle accident (MVA) are at their peak during winter due to the influx of traffic on highways and roads leading to our snow resorts and surrounding towns.

Kangaroo, wallaby, wombat and possum joeys are often orphaned, having been retrieved from the pouch of their recently killed mother (via MVA). Joeys are bottle fed around the clock and cared for 24/7 by LAOKO’s trained and licenced volunteer wildlife carers. LAOKO needs your help to ensure our rescued joeys are given the best chance at rehabilitation.

There are two ways you can donate financially to LAOKO and that is via a one-off donation below or by becoming a supporting member [click here].

If you are not in a position to donate financially or don’t have the time to volunteer with us then we are always in the need of towels, wildlife feed, enclosures, blankets, animal pouches and heat pads.
Email us at laokosmwr@gmail.com with what you can donate.



Your generous donation will help LAOKO help our wildlife!
