This film tells the story of Canberra wildlife that is being displaced, killed by cars as they search for new habitats, attacked by our pets, and buried under concrete while hibernating in the winter months. We have conversations with wildlife rescuers and carers, a snake rescuer who began Australia’s first community snake tracking program, ecologists, and concerned members of the community.
Canberra wildlife first responders are busier every year and the ACT lacks a dedicated wildlife hospital. Separate wildlife regulations prevent wildlife from the ACT being cared for by New South Wales Rescue organisations such as WIRES.
Regulations need to be placed on developers to accommodate for the wildlife that is decreasing in number with every year and every new suburb. If communities can make a change in the ACT, we can set an example to be followed throughout Australia and around the globe.
