RECENT RESCUES AT ROWA
'Along life’s journey, one has the opportunity to fulfill an act of service which inevitably reaps humbling experiences in exchange for compassion, kindness and intention'
The first not for profit organisation dedicated to wildlife within the Alpine Shire, ROWA offers a unique, networked approach to wildlife conservation and protection. ROWA plays a vital role in the rescue, care, rehabilitation and release of local wildlife, striving to deliver current best practice and working collaboratively with carers and shelters in the Alpine and surrounding municipalities.

A resource centre for visitors to learn about wildlife, conservation and animal welfare
A place for local wildlife carers to connect and receive support and respite
A venue for fundraising to support ROWA's mission
