About Barossa Wildlife Rescue
Barossa Wildlife Rescue (BWR) is a wildlife rescue group from the Barossa Valley founded and led by Rose Brooks, a registered wildlife carer in Lyndoch, South Australia.
As a little tacker Rose was forever bringing home injured or orphaned animals to look after. 17 years ago she was given her first joey to raise, named Bunty. A farmer had found this little joey in the pouch of the mother kangaroo that was deceased on the side of the road and Rose was able to hand raise Bunty. Since then Rose has been caring for other injured or orphaned wildlife such as possums, echidnas, kangaroos, koalas, birds … if it has a heartbeat, it is worth a go!
The BWR averages 485 rescues or callouts each year – most of them we have been able to nurse back to health and either release back in the wild or find a home for them at other homes or wildlife sanctuaries.
