Organisational structure

Our team

At the heart of our organisation is a team of dedicated professionals, who are committed to providing the best possible care to injured, sick, orphaned, and displaced native wildlife in the region.

WA Wildlife employs full-time, part-time, casual, and contract staff (fixed-term) who are funded by annual grants and fee for service income (i.e. education and training) who oversee daily operations and special projects.

Currently, WA Wildlife operates with a small team of staff over 350 volunteers.

*Donations made to Native ARC Incorporated only fund veterinarian salaries (in addition to food, medications, consumables etc.) and are never used for other staff/administrative salaries.

Our Patron, the Hon. Melissa Parke, is committed to wildlife conservation and is involved in building relationships with a wide range of stakeholders to progress the vision of WA Wildlife.

The Executive Committee oversees the control and management of Native ARC Incorporated’s governance and finances.

A Management Team oversees day to day operations of WA Wildlife.

We believe that every animal deserves a chance at a happy and healthy life. Our team is at the forefront of wildlife rescue and rehabilitation in Western Australia.
