Ashy the bushfire survivor

Ashy the bushfire survivor

Ashy the swamp wallaby was a lucky survivor of the recent Wallabi Point fires on the NSW north coast. One of Ashy’s ears was badly burned but has healed well.

Ashy is being cared for by volunteer Megan from FAWNA NSW INC and will be released back into the local bush when conditions improve.

Wallabi Point locals should watch out for a very cute one-eared wallaby hopping around the neighbourhood in coming months.

FAWNA NSW INC were awarded a Wildlife Heroes Emergency Fund grant this week. The funds will help them to continue their selfless work caring for injured animals like Ashy.
