The Department convened a Coordinating Body in April 2021 for the purpose of developing a community owned and led Wildlife Rehabilitation Sector Strategy in response to calls from the sector to address a range of issues.
Sector consultation, including a survey and a series of workshops, was undertaken throughout the second half of 2021.
The Coordinating Body sought written submissions on a draft Wildlife Rehabilitation Sector Strategy and Action Plan between 22 December 2021 and 31 January 2022.
