Give your used manual handling equipment a second life
Help wildlife rescuers treat and transport injured native animals
DID YOU KNOW?
Saving used SPU patient transfer products from the bin can save the day for Australia’s wildest patients, their rescuers and carers.
Across the country, Haines single patient use AAT matts are being given a second life – helping wildlife rescuers treat and transport injured native animals.
Used AAT matts are an invaluable resource for wildlife rescuers, enabling animals to be moved safely and comfortably.
They are in high demand, but short supply, with the vast majority being thrown away. To change that, we need your help.
