Wildfire emergency for animals in Australia!

Matty, a joey of just a few months old, has lost his entire family in horrendous wildfires sweeping parts of Australia.

His feet, hands, and belly were badly burnt. He is the sole survivor of a troop of roughly 80 kangaroos who were trapped and burnt to death in the blazes currently obliterating parts of the country.

Matty is just one example of the thousands of wild animals left injured, homeless, and traumatized as Australia’s fire season has begun, fuelled by the warmest winter on record and an unseasonably warm, dry spring.

Fires have destroyed thousands of acres of land and homes along the west and east coasts of the country, people have been evacuated, and thousands of wild animals have had their homes destroyed.

Orphaned, injured and alone, these animals are counting on you today…

Thousands of kangaroos, joeys, owls, magpies, and reptiles like bobtail lizards are injured and in need of critical life-saving treatment.

Please help them now!

Firefighters and law enforcement officials have their hands full trying to evacuate people to safety. Kind policemen saved Matty from the flames, but as you can imagine, animals are often not the priority when human lives are at stake.

The damage out here is shocking. So much lost. The heat is mad without the temperature [of] the day on top. Think of the people that [sic] have lost everything. The animals that have lost [their] lives and the animals still out there in pain.” – Express Wildlife Rescue and Rehab

Tragically, helpless wild animals, including infants, have been terribly injured and traumatized in the disaster. Some have been horrifically burnt after becoming trapped amid the blaze; others have been severely damaged through smoke inhalation.

We are working with a courageous organization on the ground in Western Australia called Express Wildlife Rescue and Rehab based in Henley Brook.

P.S. This is only the start of “wildfire season” – it has begun early and is expected to be one of the worst in Australia’s history. Many wild animals are already in need of emergency care, and many more are sure to need it. The more we can raise, the more animals we can save. But, without your support, we cannot provide the life-saving veterinary care and resources that Australia’s suffering wild animals DESPERATELY need right now. Please donate as generously as you can right now.
