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 and beyond. Our goal is to help raise the standard of wildlife care in Australia through education and collaboration. Our conferences are the only national conferences delivered for and by wildlife carers.
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 AWRC 2020 Conference in Darwin has been postponed due to Covid-19.
New dates are August 9 - 13 2021
All the information from past conferences is now available directly from this site. By clicking on the "Past Conferences" menu item you will be able to find and download all the papers available from each of the conferences.
