WIRES (NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service Inc.) has been rescuing and caring for wildlife for over 30 years and is the largest wildlife rescue organisation in Australia, operating 365 days a year assisting the community to help native animals in distress. 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. Your donations help WIRES to rescue and care for more native animals, provide more wildlife information and education to the community, to protect and preserve native animals and to train and support more volunteer rescuers and carers.

Wildlife Victoria is a not-for-profit charity connecting sick, injured and orphaned native wildlife in Victoria with the help they need. Their primary function is responding to community reports of distressed wildlife and facilitating the care needed. With no government funding, donations are needed to Keep the Wildlife Emergency Response Service operating 7 days a week and to train and support more volunteer rescuers and transporters to attend wildlife emergencies around the state. As the bushfire crisis continues to present major challenges to native wildlife more funding and support is needed to facilitate the rescue and rehabilitation of injured and in danger animals.

Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park Fund
The Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park fund has been set up to care for the significant number of koalas and other native species that have been injured in the Kangaroo Island fires. It is reported that the koala population on the island has dwindled from 46,000 to 9,000 since the bushfires started. The park has been treating new koalas as they come in each day with pain relief, antibiotics as well as building new infrastructure to provide a new home for the wild animals as they are rehabilitated before they can be released back into the wild.
