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 next AWRC conference will be held in Sydney, NSW in July 2018. The conference venue is in the new auditorium of the Sydney University School of Business from Monday July 2. The first 3 days are in the main auditorium and the final day includes eight optional workshops & excursions.
We have organised outstanding presenters including some of your favorites and some new faces who will be bringing you news about new and important advances in wildlife care and welfare. . There will also be an interactive forum, a new poster session, optional excursions & workshops.
