Native Animal Network
The Native Animal Network not only aims to save injured and orphaned native animals, but they also aspire to provide a point of contact for members and the general public seeking advice on native animal care. They also facilitate placement of orphaned and injured animals to a safe environment, in keeping with the Network policy of non-release of hand reared animals (as per National Parks and Wildlife Rescue Permit conditions).
If you see a kangaroo and it is not injured, you can contact the Native Animal Network who will be able to assist or you can leave the kangaroo and it should find its way back into the hills.

Sick or injured wildlife
If you find a sick or injured wild animal including kangaroos, contact your nearest veterinarian or wildlife carer organisation as soon as possible so that it may receive appropriate treatment. Wild animals become stressed by handling, so you should seek expert advice before handling an injured animal. Try to minimise the amount of exposure the injured animal has to people and loud noises. Do not attempt to feed or treat it unless you have specialist knowledge or training.
