Express Wildlife Rescue wildlife carer Andrea Marzi needs a new place to continue her work of rescuing and rehabilitating wildlife.
Express Wildlife Rescue wildlife carer Andrea Marzi needs a new place to continue her work of rescuing and rehabilitating wildlife.

When her lease runs out in about three months, Ms Marzi will have nowhere to care for the rescued birds, reptiles, mammals and domestic animals.

She has 80 rescues in her Wanneroo rental ” 15 of those permanent ” but can have as many as 220 during Christmas and snake season.

‘If there’s a property out the back of Wanneroo that would be great, as long as it’s in the City of Wanneroo because I would have to swap every licence and I have 21 licences,’ she said.

‘I’d go as far as Quinns ” if I have to go further then I have no choice.’

Her passion for animals stemmed from her father who used to bring rescues home when she was little.

Now it is just her and a team of volunteers who help everyday with feeding, cutting up fruit, cleaning cages and socialising traumatised animals.

‘I work closely with the zoo but there’s not another wildlife centre in Wanneroo,’ she said.

‘There are a couple of snake dealers that have licences so that relieves some pressure off me.’

Express Wildlife Rescue is a not-for-profit organisation that requires donations from the community to operate.
