About Us
A purpose-built facility for both Australian Megabats and Microbats located in the Shoalhaven Region of New South Wales, Australia which is operated by volunteers.
The aim of the Shoalhaven Bat Clinic is to rescue and rehabilitate both Microbats and Megabats and to provide training to carers as well as to educate members of the public.

All our carers are vaccinated and specially trained in rescue and rehabilitation.  You too can become a trained rescuer and carer by joining Wildlife Rescue South Coast Inc.

The facility has a purposely built bat clinic which houses a kitchen and coolroom and can accommodate up to several hundred bats.

The 60' flight aviary houses humidifiers, heating and lights. 3 hospital aviaries can accommodate up to 20 bats each. These aviaries also have heating.

The Clinic has an off site release cage in the local vicinity.

Microbats are catered for with a small outdoor avairy and several indoor flight cages.

Non vaccinated Volunteers are always required as each day up 35 kilos of fruit may be  cut daily in the off season. There is also a need for clerical assistance, i.e. data entry, record keeping and facility cleaners.

The Shoalhaven Bat Clinic operates under Wildlife Rescue South Coast's license.
