Local Government Rangers are city rangers, not park rangers, and therefore are not trained to capture wildlife. However, we do have a list of carers and relocators that are able to assist. Wildlife is managed by The Department of Environment and Conservation who have their own rangers:

Commonly asked questions received on a regular basis are:

What do I do if I see a dead kangaroo in a public place?

During business hours report it to Ranger Services and arrangements can be made for its removal.
What if I find an injured kangaroo?

Contact the DEC Wildlife Officer on 9734 1988 or 9725 4300 who can assess whether the kangaroo is able to be assisted medically or not.

What do I do if I find a snake in my house or garden?

Contact experienced a wildlife relocator that will happily assist. Please do not try to catch or kill the snake yourself. Many snake bites occur due to people attempting to kill the snake themselves. To assist the relocator, try to observe from a distance.

Do not upset or stir them. Leave them alone and call a professional.
