Helping Our Wildlife In Crisis

Reposted from Wildlife Queensland’s Townsville Branch Blog

In the face of the ongoing, horrific and completely unprecedented devastation of wildlife and habitat across our country please consider making a donation to the wonderful wildlife carers and rescuers desperately trying to help those animals that have survived. Many will have severe injuries and all will find their familiar territory transformed to an alien landscape without shelter, food or water.

Below is a list of some of the Wildlife Care and Rescue groups dealing with this crisis in NSW, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and Queensland.

If anyone has information for Western Australian groups covering the fire-affected areas (I believe mostly in the SE of the state at present) please let WQ know. Or indeed any other organisations in particular need  or which you can vouch for – this list can be added to. It is only a small selection – but we are truly in uncharted territory and these groups need your now more than ever before. THANK YOU!!

Wildlife Carers’ open day

North Queensland Wildlife Care Inc. are having an Open Day in Aitkenvale on Saturday 29 September.

  • Meet their dedicated and experienced carers
  • Find out more about our local native wildlife
  • Learn first aid for injured wildlife
  • Learn about what it takes to care for injured or orphaned wildlife through to release

All proceeds for the day go towards feeding and rehabilitating wildlife.

I don’t know the group, although I suspect some of its members have ended up caring for injured animals we have rescued from time to time, but this sounds like an interesting and worthwhile event. For more information, visit their website http://www.nqwildlife.org.au/.
