HELP INJURED WILDLIFE
- Pull netting tightly over the tree. Don't allow netting to lie across the ground, where it can entangle and injure other animals.
- Fix netting tightly to the tree trunk - this will stop rodents from reaching fruit.
- Make sure to remove old netting that is not protecting fruit. To dispose old netting - place it in a strong plastic bag.
- Check netted trees every day to ensure the nets are not loose and than no animals are caught.
If you find wildlife caught in netting, especially flying foxes or snakes, - do not try to handle or rescue yourself. CALL AWARE 0412 433 727 (24hrs)
