Today is Earth Day and this year's focus is to end plastic pollution. This is something I am truly passionate about and I KNOW we can actually make a difference... to this if we just do small things everyday..

Too many times I have come across animals that have been injured or have died due to plastic waste and THIS HAS TO STOP!

From poisoning and from littering our beaches and landscapes to clogging our waste streams and landfills, the exponential growth of plastics is now threatening the survival of our planet.

In this video I had a beautiful satin bowerbird brought in with a plastic ring pull stuck around it's neck. Luckily it was brought to us so we could save it, other animals that encounter plastic are not so lucky.

So this Earth Day take the pledge to stop using single use plastics and lets all work together to help change this planet for the better!

Nights are starting to get chilly, time to snuggle like this young Brushtail possum. After being lovingly raised by a Wildlife A.R.C carer she is now preparing for release.

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!

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.
