Member for Monaro John Barilaro has continued to applaud the efforts of locals recognised at the recent Monaro Service Awards.

Mr Barilaro has now recognised in a social-media post the services of LAOKO to young animals.

Known as 'Looking After Our Kosciuszko Orphans', the group is run by trained volunteering carers who rescue and care for native wildlife in the Snowy Monaro region.

Mr Barilaro says the work the volunteers put in is around-the-clock.

"The volunteers provide night-time care for the animals, as well as a 24-hour support service for animals found injured or orphaned," Mr Barilaro said.

Monaro Service Awards were recently presented at ceremonies in Cooma and Queanbeyan.
