Wildcare's Fire Victims Rehabilitation
We have been so lucky to have so many supporters contributing funds and feed for the victims of the the three major fires in our area. As the recent rain and limited use of fire retardant chemicals in the more Wildlife sensitive areas means that new growth will help return the local habitats to sustainable levels, sooner may have been expected. Wildcare is now moving into rehabilitation mode, with in excess of 40 animals in care, most requiring frequent dressing changes and medication, our work is just beginning.
Our focus on care of animals in the wild and habitat management will gradually be redirected to those animals in care as conditions in the fire grounds return to normal and the ever present burden on our dedicated carers increases.
Your continued and generous support is crucial to our rehabiiltation efforts and we are so very thankful for the unprecedented level of support and generosity shown by so many.. Thank you
