Being close to the Hills Face Zone and having bushland reserves, the City of Burnside is home to Australian wildlife. What do you do if you find one on your property or if you find an injured animal?
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.
Koalas are an iconic native species with a very high public profile. Koalas are protected by law in South Australia.
The City of Burnside acknowledges that possums are prevalent in the Burnside area and they can cause significant distress to some residents.
