Ausgrid takes seriously our responsibility for caring for native wildlife in our day to day activities. Environmental controls for protecting and caring for native wildlife are specified in Ausgrid’s NUS 174C Environmental Handbook for Construction and Maintenance.
Ausgrid works with local wildlife rescue organisations to address the rescue of native wildlife associated with Ausgrid’s assets. We also donate expired first aid items to local wildlife rescue organisations in our network area. If you spot native wildlife injured on Ausgrid’s assets, contact our Emergency Services on 13 13 88 to log an incident. Make sure you have the location details of the injured wildlife.
