Wildlife Emergency Response Fund
Bushfires ravaging our country are taking an unprecedented toll on wildlife and other animals. It’s estimated that more than one billion animals have been killed in this disaster of epic proportions that shows no sign of fading.
HSI has now deployed a disaster response team to Kangaroo Island to assist with rescue and recovery efforts in the region. HSI is a leader in global disaster response, deploying all over the world in times of need.
We have been helping incredible wildlife carers facing this devastating tragedy with the launch of our Wildlife Emergency Response Fund in November and have already provided emergency truckloads of water and supplementary feed for rescued wombats, kangaroos and flying foxes across Australia, and are funding the building of additional rehabilitation enclosures for koalas and other wildlife. The requests for help are rolling in as the crisis deepens.
So often wildlife carers go above and beyond for our wildlife, and do it tough in order to provide for animals in need - but now they really need our support.
