2,535 Emergency Calls to help wildlife were received by WIRES in the first 7 days of 2019! 

Pacific Baza chickOne of those calls saved Petrie’s life. 

Petrie, a Pacific Baza chick, was barely a week old when she fell from her nest during strong winds in Sydney North Shore. She was alone, exposed to 35 degree temperatures and totally defenceless when she was found by a young girl. 

4 year old Maia’s parents called the WIRES rescue team and an urgent rescue alert was sent out to all trained people in the area. 

The exhausted and semi-conscious chick, only had a small chance of surviving, according to her rescuer, Caroline. 

Caroline, as with a lot of WIRES rescuers, knows to be prepared for anything. She had all the equipment needed to treat Petrie for shock, giving her fluids on site and keeping her warm.

Thanks to young Maia and Caroline, Petrie not only survived but is now thriving. 

She is three times the size she was when she was rescued, recently being moved into a large aviary where she will learn to hunt and fly before being released back to the wild. 

Every day our rescue team manages hundreds of calls for help, and every day WIRES volunteers put themselves in vulnerable and sometimes dangerous positions in order to assist native animals.

Help us continue our life saving work by donating today.
