Release a win for WIRES volunteers

WIRES volunteers throughout the central west are celebrating a win after the successful release of a Wedge Tailed Eagle back into the wild.

Cara the Wedge Tailed Eagle came in at 63 days old. She was cared for by a WIRES Raptor carer in Young until she was ready for flight practice at which time she was transferred to another WIRES Raptor carer in Albury.

She was then returned for release back into the wild at a Caragabal property where she was originally discovered.

WIRES would like to thank the property owners for their quick response in containing Cara and notifying WIRES.

If you would like to be involved with caring for our native fauna and assisting them to return to the wild, WIRES Weddin Lachlan is holding a basic Rescue and Immediate Care course on August 11 in Cowra.

WIRES rescues and rehabilitates all native fauna.
