About Us

Barossa Wildlife Rescue is a not-for-profit wildlife rescue & rehabilitation organisation supporting the Barossa Valley and surrounding regions. ​

Founded by Rose Brooks, a registered wildlife carer in Lyndoch, South Australia. As a little tacker Rose was forever bringing home injured or orphaned animals to look after, and she was given her first joey to raise named Bunty. Since then Rose has been caring for other injured or orphaned wildlife such as possums, echidnas, kangaroos, koalas, birds …  if it has a heartbeat, it is worth a go!

The BWR averages 800 rescues or callouts each year – most of them we have been able to nurse back to health and either release back in the wild or find a home for them at other homes or wildlife sanctuaries.

Our Mission

To have a sustainable wildlife organization within the Barossa valley area with a dedicated team of volunteers who work towards the rescue, rehabilitation and release (where possible) of wildlife.

Educate the community and also promote further opportunities on education choices for our younger generations.

Their diet also includes native browse, which is what they would be eating if they were out in the wild.
