You can help with shock by keeping the animal warm and quiet by placing a blanket or towel around them until help arrives.

Please do not give water to a trauma victim in shock .

Approach an injured animal with caution.

Please try and stay with the animal until help arrives.

Do not attempt to pick up a Koala or a Kangaroo as they can be very unpredictable when injured and the fight or flight response may cause injury to a well-meaning person.
