The information here is specifically directed toward the community on the Northern Rivers of NSW, Australia. Here we can try to counterbalance the globalised online library, which threatens to crowd-out important, locally distinct information. Our uniquely venomous ticks and snakes are the most striking examples, where local knowledge trumps global. Wildlife carers, wanting to share their insights are welcome to contribute.
