Amazing incredible man. A saviour and teacher of our wildlife. Thank you. May u have a very happy birthday. ๐ŸŽ‚

Sad that he still has to fight for much needed protection for our natural world, that the 'powers that be' ignore his expertise in the name of economic and population growth.

Amazing man!

Today, we launched our fourth bushfire recovery nursery, together with Friends of the Koala Inc. and our partners, L'OCCITANE en Provence and One Tree Planted.

The 80,000 additional trees grown here will support the declining koala population on the NSW North Coast, particularly following the Black Summer.

Today we are featuring Dr Tamsyn Bradley, a #WildlifeFriendlyVet from Animal Referral Hospital Gosford in NSW.

Dr Bradley was nominated by a local wildlife carer, who had some glowing words to say!

"Dr Tamsyn, and the amazing ARH staff care for our wildlife patients 24/7. They are kind and compassionate to the stressed rescuers and carers and members of public coming in with, quite often, extremely ill or severely injured animals and their service and skills are beyond compare. I am the Acting Species Coordinator for Macropods and Wombats and can not recommend Dr Tamsyn highly or warmly enough. Iโ€™ve been taking animals to ARH for many years now, including my own pets and am so incredibly grateful for them. Dr Tamsyn and some of the nursing staff have also become fantastic wildlife carers, and have undergone extra training in wildlife medicine which, to me, shows even greater dedication."

The picture featured on this post shows Dr Tamsyn with a Swamp Wallaby 'Willow' who she raised from a very small, just furred, very stressed orphan into a healthy, happy and confident sub adult wallaby who has now been successfully released.

We are in awe of the amazing work that Dr Tamsyn does every day, and applaud ARH Gosford for their commitment to saving our native wildlife.

In 2015 the United Nations adopted a set of 17
#sustainabledevelopmentgoals that serve as a blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and planet, now and into the future. SDGs are now a globally recognised way of measuring impact in designated areas.

FNPW's work on growing parks and saving species has had the most impact on six specific #SDGs

SDG 13: Climate Action

After the Black Summer bushfires, FNPW committed to plant one million trees by 2025.

With thanks to our major partners, One Tree Planted and L'OCCITANE en Provence, Bushfire Recovery Nurseries have been established to support restoration.

These nurseries build on established community nurseries to support community engagement projects and to deliver large scale planting projects.

Sites will be planted with various native tree species that will help protect threatened wildlife such as the koala, glossy black cockatoo and swift parrot. Initial locations have been established in Yankalilla (SA), Hawkesbury (NSW) and the ACT.

Today our feature #WildlifeFriendlyVet is Dr Ali Bee, from the Bayside Veterinary Clinic of Palms Veterinary Group in Townsville, QLD.

Ali was nominated by a client, who had the following to say:

"Ali is one of only three vets we are able to take our bats/flying foxes to for treatment, as well as any other wildlife we rescue or care for. Ali has always been a caring, willing and very capable vet and friend to many of us in Townsville. Every time we need Ali she is there, and there is not one but hundreds of times over that Ali has helped us nurture, heal and return our rescued animals to freedom."

Thanks to Ali for providing such great care to our native animals!

Today our feature #wildlifefriendlyvet is Dr Alistair Hayward of Mivet in Leeton and Narrandera, NSW.

Dr Hayward was nominated by a local wildlife carer, who was extremely appreciative of his commitment to achieving the best possible outcome for wild patients, irrespective of whether they are endangered or common, with his strong conviction that every animal is important.

Dr Hayward will go out of his way to treat wildlife, seeing patients out of hours and at no cost to the wildlife carer.

We applaud Dr Hayward's commitment to our beautiful native species.

The next #WildlifeFriendlyVet to be featured this month is Dr Ben Brown, the practice owner and veterinarian at Sydney Animal Hospitals Northern Beaches. Dr Brown was nominated three times!

Dr Brown and his practice do over $60,000 worth of pro bono wildlife work every year, treating wildlife every day despite their busy schedule, and constantly trying to upskill their staff. The practice also sent teams of vets and vet nurses to assist wildlife during the terrible Black Summer bushfires in 2019/20.

It is vets like Dr Brown that deserve so much recognition for their hard work taking care of our native wildlife. Through the Wildlife Friendly Vets campaign, the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife hope to assist vets like this in accessing funding, training and resources to support them in their work.

Great job be proud ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’–

When I was a vet nurse 40 years ago, the Heynes & Shenman Veterinary Hospital I worked at treated wildlife and guide dogs for no charge. Heartening to see the tradition is continuing. This is what truly caring for animals is all about <3 xxx.

So cool!!

Thankyou Dr Brown you are very much appreciated......so many of these animals live because of your selfless generosity.

You sir are my kind of hero!

One of the very first vets to be nominated by a local wildlife carer was Dr Charlie Carter of Southern Highlands Veterinary Centre. Charles is an incredible vet, who actually features in some of the pictures found on our website!

Charlie was nominated by Peg McDonald of Higher Ground Raptors, who had the following to say:

"Charlie has been my friend and wildlife vet for nearly 15 years. He never says no to any animal, tries his hardest to increase his wildlife knowledge by way of interacting with specialist overseas vets in our special field of birds of prey, and has completed other courses to improve his wildlife knowledge"

We are very happy to welcome Dr Charlie Carter to the community!

Over the next few weeks, we are excited to share our #impact in 2020 through our support of projects that help achieve The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

In 2015 the United Nations adopted a set of 17 #sustainabledevelopmentgoals that serve as a blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and planet, now and into the future. SDGs are now a globally recognised way of measuring impact in designated areas.

FNPWโ€™s work on growing parks and saving species has had the most impact on six specific #sdgs

SDG 3: Good Health and Well-being

Caring for Carers: Volunteer wildlife carers play a critical role in the care and rehabilitation of sick, injured or orphaned native animals in Australia. While this role can be extremely rewarding, it also comes with many challenges, and supporting the physical, mental and emotional wellness of these volunteers is vital if the sector is to succeed.

In 2020 FNPW partnered with Two Green Threads, an organisation that provides support to wildlife carers. Over the past 6 months, the Two Green Threads website has been visited by more than 2,300 individuals seeking help and resources.
