L.A.O.K.O. (Looking After Our Kosciuszko Orphans) is a wildlife rescue group based in the Snowy Mountains region of NSW. Our group of trained volunteer carers assist in the rescue and care of native wildlife in the local area. Each year hundreds of native animals are injured or killed as a result of car accidents, dog attacks and human intervention in the form of unauthorised culling. Many young animals as a result are left orphaned and our organisation assists in the raising of these orphans and rehabilitating for release back into the wild.
If you find an injured animal in our area, please contact us as soon as possible on (02) 6456 1313. In the meantime, click
here for instructions on how to keep the animal as comfortable as possible till help arrives.
