Wildlife Emergency App

The Wildlife Emergency app provides a straightforward way to report wildlife impacted by bushfire in Victoria to the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP). DELWP is the lead agency for managing wildlife welfare arising from bushfires. You can access the app at any time but can only submit a wildlife report over the fire season.

You can use the app to quickly report to DELWP, by providing some basic information, adding photographs (if appropriate) and confirming the location. If your device is not connected to the internet, you can still create a report and will be prompted to submit it when your device has an internet connection.

Please take care when you are near injured or distressed animals. Approaching them or improper capture and handling techniques can cause further distress or injury to both yourself and wildlife.

For injured wildlife not associated with a fire or emergency event, please call Wildlife Victoria on 03 8400 7300.

Fire grounds are dangerous, even after the fire front has passed. Individuals, wildlife rescue and rehabilitation groups must not enter the fire ground area to search for wildlife.
