Since 2003 Australian wildlife carers have gathered to meet, learn and share their experiences. Each conference has been held in a different location, and has featured presenters from around Australia.
The conference gives wildlife carers the opportunity to learn from each other and from experts in the field including researchers, carers and veterinarians. Topics have ranged from the latest hands-on treatment for wounds to emergency response, fund-raising and lobbying.

The Melbourne Conference is now ended, and we now have another two years to wait until the next conference, to be held in NSW - more information on that soon.
The AWRC would like to express its thanks to the Victorian Wildlife Council for doing such an excellent job for the 2016 conference. We also acknowledge all of the people who helped in so many ways, especially the brilliant array of speakers, presenters and session leaders who made the conference such a great success.
Last but not least we thank all of the delegates who attended, participated (and danced) their way through the conference, making it one of the most memorable events yet. The AWRC conferences are for you and we greatly appreciate your ongoing support.
