Have fun with your colleagues and help sick, injured or orphaned wildlife have a second chance of life in the wild.


Let's face it, work doesn't always have to be about 'work'. It can also be about making lifelong friends and combining your skills, talents and passions to create meaningful action for wildllife!  Whether you are a team manager or a team player, you can make a difference to the future of our wildlife. There are many ways you can motivate your tribe into action for wildlife.


Calling all wildlife warriors! We need YOU to put your run, walk or jog into action at one of the next big physical challenge events. Go it solo or get your colleagues and staff motivated and create a #teamWIRES, and you'll be saving wildlife with every step! We look forward to seeing you at the starting line. Don't forget to use our hashtag #WIRESfundraiser for your postings on socials.

Divide your office into teams and set them the task of creating their own team fundraising page and hold an inter-team talent quest 'battle off'. Ask each team to share their story on their fundraising page to encourage donations to their team event.


Have a 'green day' at work in support for our native wildlife. From green hair, to green smoothies, to a green lunch, or wearing green or decking out your office in green, you can get creative as your office raises funds to support the critical rescue and care of our native wildlife.


Get your colleagues or staff to start their own 'get fit' challenge for a month and build some healthy office competition. Encourage them to fundraise for wildlife by setting up their own fundraising page, with the highest fundraiser receiving a company reward!


Break out the mics and belt out the tunes for a good cause. Have the office compete in teams or as individuals and rate performances in terms of a donation on the fundraising page and then determine which one of your colleagues can cover the best version of their favourite '80s ballad. 


Ask staff to bring a dish and take a break from the usual lunch options grind. Pick a themed lunch and bring the office together for a relaxed lunch. Ask all staff to make a contribution to wildlife to the value of what they usually spend on their lunch if eating out.


Everyone loves a good baby photo challenge. The challenge is to match your colleagues with their baby photo. Ask a donation for all those who enter the competition, with the winner receiving a company prize!


We want your fundraiser to be a raging success! We've compiled some handy resources to assist you along the way.
