Due to our location we have a variety of wildlife on campus. Do not approach or attempt to touch any bird or animal. Sometimes koalas are thirsty in summer so it's okay to leave some water nearby for them to drink.
If you see a snake, back away quietly and contact Security to notify them of its location. Our security and grounds maintenance staff are trained in snake awareness and handling.
If you believe that an animal is injured or in need of assistance, on campus, please contact Miss Leslie Morrison, Animal Facilities Manager, Science and Engineering.
Alternatively, if the Animal Facilities Manager is unavailable, you may contact the University Veterinarian (who may be on campus). They will advise you how they will proceed, and if your further assistance is required.
If an animal requires veterinary attention, they will arrange for this.
