Join the Mob: Become a BWR Member

Barossa Wildlife Rescue Incorporated (BWR) is a membership organisation. Anyone can apply to become a member!

Types of Membership

Members can be either Active Volunteers or Friends of BWR.  

Active Volunteers are directly involved in our operations, including wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and care. There are various roles available, and you will be provided with training, mentoring and support. To find out more about the roles available, call our Rescue Hotline on 0402 646 574 and speak to Rose, or send us an email at  

All our Active Volunteers are required to be members.

    Friends of BWR are members because they care about wildlife and want to support our efforts to protect our local wildlife. While not directly involved with our operations, Friends of BWR provide invaluable financial support and enable our in-progress application to obtain Deductible Gift Recipient approval.  

    Do you love wildlife, but are unable to actively volunteer with us? Become a member to support us!

    • Membership fees contribute a source of revenue to meet our core operating costs which benefit members, including public liability, association and volunteer insurance.

    Annual membership fees are due at the beginning of each financial year (1 July).

    Adult – $25

    Family – $40

    Concession – $10

    Where members join after the beginning of the financial year, their membership fee for their first year of membership will be adjusted in accordance with when they became a member, as outlined below.

    1 July – 30 September Full fee
