Australian Animals Care & Education
We are a group dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of all injured, ill or orphaned native Australian fauna. Located in central Queensland, our members serve an area that stretches from Mackay to the north, Monto to the south and Moranbah to the west.
AACE was founded in July 2003 in response to an obvious demand within the community for qualified wildlife carers. Today we have 50+ active members.
Under the auspices of the Queensland EPA and Parks and Wildlife, we are currently caring for 60+ endangered Bridled Nailtail Wallabies through AACE’s Project Kial: A Bridled Nailtail Recovery Project. In partnership with government agencies, community groups, volunteer organisations and local businesses we are working hard to recover this almost extinct species.
AACE members also strive to educate the public about the vital role Australia’s wildlife plays in the wellbeing of our environment and economy.
Animals cared for by AACE wildlife carers include orphaned baby koalas, gliders, bettongs, echidnas, wombats, wallabies, kangaroos as well as a wide variety of birds.
