Wildlife Victoria: Donations to our Victorian bushfire appeal will be distributed to wildlife shelters and carers to help rebuild enclosures and equipment that they have lost in the fires so that they can continue their lifesaving work, and support those that are struggling to cope with the enormous number of animals that will need care in the coming weeks and months. Donate here.
Wallambia Wildlife Shelter: We are sad to report that Wallabia Wildlife Shelter and Rena and Joe's house burnt down in the Goongerah fires on 30 December. Goongerah is facing more fires today and will in the coming months. Rena and Joe's wildlife skills and care are needed more than ever.
