A new dedicated hotline is up and running in Tasmania to ensure reports of injured raptors can be responded to immediately.

The Hodgman Liberal Government is delivering on its commitment of $7000 to the maintenance of the 1800RAPTOR Hotline, to ensure injured birds can get the care they need as soon as possible.

The Raptor and Wildlife Refuge has been working hard for a number of years to successfully rehabilitate birds of prey before they are released back into the wild where they belong.

For an injured bird to have the best chance of survival, let alone rehabilitation, time is critical.

This commitment follows the signing of a Deed of Agreement between the Raptor and Wildlife Refuge and the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment (DPIPWE).

The Hodgman Liberal Government is proud to be a part of this initiative that helps save the lives of injured wildlife.

Elise Archer, Minister for the Environment
