  • the appropriate food and shelter necessary to aid rehabilitation
  • emergency care and first-aid for native mammals, birds and reptiles
  • case studies detailing how injury to native animals can occur and ways to prevent it
  • when to release recovering animals back into the wild
  • how to hand-rear orphaned animals
  • the natural habitat and diet of various Australian species
  • nutritious homemade recipes for injured animals.

Black and white illustrations, colour photographs, and feature boxes complement the authoritative text.
