BUSHFIRE CRISIS! Your help needed!
Will you help save threatened birds this summer?
Just a week after winter, serious bushfires broke out in Queensland. Hundreds of fires are now raging across the country - even in habitats that don't usually see fire.
This bushfire season has already been catastrophic, and it's far from over. Experts predicted a tough bushfire season and that's become a terrible reality. Our thoughts are with everyone impacted by the fires.
Aussie bushfires aren't what they used to be.
The Aussie bush is as dry as we've ever seen it, with many areas in severe drought. These conditions have contributed to a perfect storm for extreme bushfires. Already, huge tracts of habitat across the country have been destroyed.
Millions of birds have already been impacted by the bushfire crisis. It's likely fire will affect over 50 bird species and subspecies.
This is an unprecedented wildlife emergency. We need your help.
