27 Apr Wildlife Heroes helping shelters in need
I would to thanks Wildlife Heroes from the bottom of my heart. The grants that they have given to shelters for the fires has been life saving.
During the horrible bushfires in East Gipplsand our wildlife was impacted beyond belief. I begged the Governing bodies to let me go to affected areas and help on the ground by doing rescues & recovery, but due to safety I wasn’t allowed and because I was 3 hours from the fires, I couldn’t get any animals in care either, because the Governing bodies felt my shelter was too far away. So I found another way to help. My friends and I got together and made over 30 Ringtail drays, 20 Brushtail boxes, purchased feed for all types of wildlife and brought all different types of supplies for local shelters directly affected and who had lots of animals in care, that was my way of helping. Some of those animals are still in care and doing well and my friends and I are still doing feed drops in areas where animals still out in the wild don’t have enough to eat. We are humbled we have been able to help animals out in the wild survive this crisis and now we have had some rain, their food is starting to come back, so hopefully they will now be ok.
