What is Wildlife Assist?
Animal Food, Water and Shelter station monitoring
Wildlife Assist is a digital tool for tracking and monitoring the provision of Food, Water and Shelter resources for wildlife as a response to natural disaster or species preservation initiatives.
Download the App for free on Google Play and Apple stores.
Why the App?
Wildlife Assist was developed by Taronga Conservation Society Australia as part of an Australian Federal Government bushfire response initiative in the wake of the 2019/20 'Black Summer' Bushfires which had a devastating impact on wildlife populations across Australia, particularly in the regional areas of NSW and Victoria.
A need was identified to better track, monitor and manage the three main types of care provided to animal populations in natural-disaster affected areas.
