If it’s not urgent, please let us know and we’ll have someone contact you within a business day to make an appointment.

Privacy/Confidentiality

No.  We need to collect some data, such as your name, phone number, etc.  However, your information will not be shared with anyone except the counsellor you’ll be speaking with.

Data collected includes your name, age, gender, organisation, who referred you and how long you’ve been working with wildlife. This information will be used only to secure funding and for research purposes. It will never be shared with outside parties or organisation. Demographic data collected will be used for research by WildTalk to help us constantly improve our programs and securing future funding.
