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.

What's in a name?
We changed names from the "National" to "Australian" Wildlife Rehabilitation Conference. As we have been able to attract overseas presenters and delegates, we felt it important to be clear about the location and function of this series of conferences.
