he very best way to help wildlife, is to check the pouches of any
dead animals on the road to see if there might be a baby alive and waiting to be
rescued. If so - phone a monitored wildlife rescue service and have them pick up
the baby, even if you cannot remove it from the pouch. Don't force it off the
teat. Call a local wildlife shelter or carer.

Write, ring and speak personally to your local politician indicating that the native animals of your area are of interest to you, their well being and habitat preservation most important.

Sponsoring a species or a particular animal can be arranged through the East Gippsland Wildlife Rehabilitators Inc..
It's one way that children can develop an interest in the animals that are as much a part of Australia as the soil found on its surface. The animals go deeper in some instances and are no less important than the soil they helped to create and keep fertile.
