Magnetic Island Fauna Care Organisation

If you’ve found an animal in need of rescuing please call the

Rescue Hotline:  0457 634 732


MIFCO is a not-for-profit organisation run by volunteer wildlife carers who devote their time for sick, injured or orphaned native animals, birds and reptiles on Magnetic Island. Once rehabilitated they are then released back into the wild.

We also work with North Queensland Parks and Wildlife with regards to turtles and koalas.


If you see any animals in distress call the Magnetic Island Fauna Care Organization on 0457 634 732.

For injured and orphaned wallabies call the Wallaby Refuge on Magnetic Island on 0400 243 842.

For injured or snake removal call Rod Thorne on Magnetic Island on 0403 292 295.


Currently, the Townsville based organization North Queensland Wildlife Care Inc. provides basic training courses on wildlife care.

If you would like to register your expression of interest in these trainings please contact 0457 634 732.


As a small organisation we’re always looking for assistance. If you would like to volunteer your time, become a wildlife carer, or donate funds to help us feed and nurture animals, we’ll be more than happy to welcome you. Simply contact us at:
