About Southern Cross Wildlife Care

If I can do something to alleviate the stress, pain and suffering of these animals…that’s why I do this work.Dr. Howard Ralph OAM – Founder

Southern Cross Wildlife Care (SCWC) was founded by our veterinary surgeon, Dr. Howard Ralph OAM and his wife, Glenda.

SCWC was established for the purpose of treating and caring for injured, sick and orphaned wildlife.

Why is Southern Cross Wildlife Care so special?

We believe that all wildlife rescue groups are vitally important but our organisation is in the privileged position to have our own full-time veterinarian with a wealth of experience. Wildlife veterinarians are extremely hard to find and those with the skills and experience of Dr Ralph, even rarer let alone the compassion and determination.

Dr Ralph and wife Glenda are supported by qualified veterinary nurses and other volunteers. However, we always need more help – click here for volunteer info.

How does SCWC raise its funds?

SCWC is a non-profit Registered Charity and therefore relies on the kindness of others for donations.

Sadly, our patient list is expanding and we receive no government funding or assistance. We all feel very strongly about our precious and declining wildlife and we are committed to assisting each and every creature that comes through the door.

All donations in Australia are tax deductible. Please go to our Donate page for details.
