Rescue Contacts

BIEPA is not a wildlife rescue organisation so we are not qualified to help with injured, sick, or dead animals.

The organisations listed below will be able to help.

Please call the marine stranding or wildlife rescue numbers on this page if you have found a sick, injured, or dead native Australian animal.


The person taking your call will ask for helpful information, such as:

  • Location (GPS coordinates if possible).

  • A description of the animal:

    • species (e.g. dugong, turtle, whale, dolphin);

    • condition;

    • size; and

    • any identifying tags.

  • A description of what is wrong with the animal; e.g. stranded on beach, injured, entangled in net or crab pot.

  • Photos if available.

  • Your contact details.

To report cruelty to any animal, call the RSPCA.
