Have a previous good experience with A.R.C but today I have been waiting for with duck for 45 minutes that has been attacked by some sort of animal. Not impressed.

Thank you to Julie, Simone and Ali for all your help this week. I had a terribly sick possum that needed help. ARC carers were the most supportive and caring people I've ever met.
Thank you from the ...bottom of my heart � See More

Great people that volunteer their time to help the animals ♡
I see you! The Central Coast is blessed with Tawny Frogmouths but don't mistake them for owls, they are actually related to Nightjar and lack the strong clawed feet of raptors. They are nocturnal aficionados of tasty cockroaches so thank them when you see a fleeting glance of their wings, off to gobble up more cockroaches for us. If you find an injured Tawny or a fallen baby which cannot be reunited with its parents, please contact us at 0243250666 Wildlife A.R.C for assistance 24hrs.
This chatterbox is a juvenile Dollarbird. These birds breed here in Australia during the Summer, before migrating to New Guinea and surrounding islands in March or April. They're quite noisy, as you can see!
The incredible Lyrebird is a spectacular animal! Not only does it have an amazing courtship display, they are masters of mimicking human noises such as chainsaws and camera clicks. But do lyrebirds in the wild really make these sounds? You bet they do! If they hear it, they can copy it!! I wasn't able to capture Mr Lyrebird on camera as he had just ducked behind the tree, but all of these bird songs are from the one bird!! I was lucky enough to capture this as I was out with my horse in the Olney State Forest at Jiliby.

This tiny Crested Pigeon is eating well and growing strong for his upcoming release on the NSW Central Coast. Yes he might be small now but his goals are large and his determination relentless (when it comes to eating!)

His nest mate was too sick to survive and due to illness he was not reunited with his parents but he won't give up (eating..)

If you find a sick or injured native bird around the NSW Central Coast please contact us at Wildlife A.R.C 0243250666 for rescue or care.

Animal Referral Hospital West Gosford congratulations your turtles are hatching!🐢

On 22/11/17 ARH West Gosford teamed up with Wildlife A.R.C to remove eggs from a Eastern Long Neck turtle who had terrible head and body injuries from a car. The eggs have been incubated by a Wildlife A.R.C carer and after 67 days they are now hatching.

We understand that they have all been named Paris, so far Paris 1 and Paris 2 are fully hatched with Paris 3 on its way.


We send a big thank you to ARH for their hard work and dedication to the care of all animals.

The Dollarbird is a migratory bird from the Roller family and the only one we are fortunate to have visit the NSW Central Coast.

These skilled flyers mainly feed on flying insects during their visiting months of September through to March.

You may have them around and not even realise, watch this short clip and laugh along with their cackle!


Wildlife A.R.C is available 24/7 for any injured or orphaned Dollarbirds around the NSW Central Coast 0243250666

THE Central Coast has welcomed thousands of visitors these school holidays but two guests to turn up unannounced this week are definitely unwanted — so much so they have been summarily executed.

People of the Central Coast!
We NEED you!!!

The ARC hotline is the lifeblood to our group!
Without people manning the phones, our sweet little orphans and injured animals would be left to die. ...
We are PROUD to offer this service to the Central Coast but a few awesome people cannot do it all!!

Too busy to be a carer?
Then become a Phonie!
Too financially challenged to care for hungry babies?
Then become a Phonie!
No transportation to help rescue?
Then become a Phonie!!!

Even filling in one or two shifts a month would be a fabulous way to help the wildlife of our area!!

Come to our Hotline training day, join on the day and start saving lives!!!

Did you know that Wildlife A.R.C rescues and cares for frogs too?

Frogs are amphibians with a central nervous system and unique glands that can exude slime to even poison in some species. They feel pain and suffer from stress when injured or sick just as any other creature does. Due to the global devastating impact of the fungal infection, Chytrid, extreme care is taken in handling frogs and the exact location they came from must be known.

The NSW Central Coast is home to many endemic frogs, froglets and toadlets. If you find an injured or displaced froggo please don't hesitate to contact us on 0243250666

Keeping cats in your yard is easy thanks to this wonderful invention. Also helpful for escape artist dogs!

Please don't hesitate to contact us on 0243250666 if you find an injured or orphaned native animal around the NSW Central Coast
