Let's do our part!
The level of suffering and devastation of our people, animals and environment across this incredible country of ours is so hard to fathom right now. Australia is burning and needs our support. ANY donation helps. To do our bit we are running this raffle to raise awareness and as much money as we can. All moneys from this raffle is going to WIRES Australia (wires.org.au).
In WIRES history there has never been a concurrent series of emergencies events like those that began in November 2019. Hundreds of fires over weeks have burnt over 4.9 million hectares of land in NSW alone. Many animals were already struggling with a lack of water and food due to the drought. With the fires destroying unprecedented amounts of habitat, food shortages have increased and lack of suitable habitat will be a significant long-term challenge for surviving wildlife.
It is impossible to know how many animals have perished and it will be many months before the impact on wild populations can be better understood but ecologists at Sydney University have estimated over 800 million animals have been affected in Australia since September.
Summer is a frantically busy time for wildlife rescue and there are still over 100 fires burning in NSW. In December alone there were over 20,000 calls to WIRES 1300 line, a 14% increase on last year, and volunteers attended over 3,300 rescues.
To help rescue sick, injured and orphaned wildlife please support WIRES Emergency Fund.
Donations by Paypal can be made through the Paypal Giving Fund.
Our thoughts are with all of those affected. Please stay safe, lets make a difference!
RAFFLE ONLY OPEN TO AUS RESIDENTS.
