Of the available $250,000, $120,000 will be divided up evenly between the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital, RSPCA Wildlife Hospital and Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital to help cover the costs of caring for animals being brought in for treatment.
The remaining funding, $130,000, will be provided to individual carers and wildlife care groups.
Eligible individual carers who do this selfless work on behalf of all Queenslanders can apply for a grant of up to $2,000 and eligible care groups can apply for a grant of up to $5,000.
The round will open 29 January 2020 with grants provided in an ongoing basis until all funding is allocated, so interested applicants should apply early when the round opens.
Grant program guidelines and the application form will be published on the Department of Environment and Science’s website on 29 January 2020 at https://www.qld.gov.au/environment/pollution/funding/community-sustainability
