Report & Rescue
BruWILD's Report & Rescue initiative was first initiated in 2013. BruWILD works with the Wildlife Division, MPRT in help rescuing injured or stray wildlife, or help release caged protected animals.
Ever since the inception of this project, we have rescued various types of animals including slowloris, pangolins, numerous types of birds and reptiles.
This initiative consists of three main phases:
1. Phase I: Introduction of a HOTLINE - DONE!
Back in 2013, there was no hotline for public members to contact us or the authority when they came across injured wildlife or if they find any illegal sales of protected animals. In order for us to connect and work with the public members, BruWILD successfully launched our hotline in 2014 and has been active ever since.
To increase our exposure, Brunei Times managed to cover a short article: 'BruWILD hotline giving lifeline to endangered animals'.

2. Phase II: Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Training - DONE!
Having a hotline was not enough; although BruWILD consists of mainly biologists with diverse background of expertise, we did not have the appropriate skills to rescue and rehabilitate wildlife. Ecological work experience and theoretical knowledge were not enough.
To solve this problem, we have undergone wildlife rescue and rehabilitation training conducted by the International Wildlife Rehabilitation Council (IWRC). Today, at least 15 BruWILD members are trained and certified to carry out wildlife rehabilitation work. We're working closely with our collaborators IWRC, the Wildlife Division and Agricultural Department (MPRT) in our wildlife rescue and rehabilitation efforts.

3. PHASE III: Report & Rescue - ACTIVE
Using the tools we have, BruWILD is currently with the Wildlife Division in its effort to release wildlife back to its natural habitat.
